House Chamber is quiet today

The House worked late into the night on Friday, but is not passing bills today. However, the place is still buzzing with members and staff working on last-minute amendments, negotiations, and strategies to get all the House bills over to the Senate by Thursday's deadline.

On Monday, our committees will begin hearing bills the Senate is passing over to us right now, and our bills will go through the same process over there. Ah, Democracy!
