The House Is Not In Session - Next Session Thursday, March 30 At 9:00 AM
House Session - December 21, 2011

As the speaker walked off the platform during a pro forma session, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer called on House Republicans to allow a vote on Senate-passed legislation to extend Social Security payroll tax cuts and unemployment benefits. Mr. Hoyer then yielded to Representative Chris Van Hollen, who could not be heard as the House recording studio turned off microphones. Normally microphones are shut off as soon as sessions gavel out.
