The House has recessed until 3 p.m., at which time both the Republicans and Democrats are planning short caucuses before they return to the floor. No committee meetings were announced before the House recessed – not even Rev & Tax – so it doesn’t look like much will happen before that hour, other than behind the scenes. Asked what happens between now and 3 p.m., House Speaker Bruce Newcomb said with a grin, “We work on deals.”
