Scheduling

Thursday: tax package, spending bill

House lawmakers are expected to vote on a tax-extender package on Thursday as they begin to wrap up their work for the year. 
 
The 233-page bill totals $622 billion with a host of tax breaks for individuals and businesses. The vote in the House comes after the tax deal was unveiled late Tuesday evening. 
 
{mosads}Votes in the House are scheduled between 10:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. and 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. 
 
House lawmakers are also expected to start debate on the omnibus spending legislation, but aren’t expected to vote on that until Friday. 
 
Meanwhile, the Senate will be in “morning business” until 6 p.m., allowing senators to give general speeches. 
 
No votes are scheduled in the Senate; senators have largely been in a holding pattern as they wait for the tax package and end-of-the-year spending bill to be sent over from the House. 
 
Republican leadership suggested that the Senate could try to vote as early as Friday.
