WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– House Republican leaders expressed confidence Monday that they would round up the votes to pass a border bill before Congress adjourns for its August recess at week's end, the Washington Examiner reported.
Members of incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's team of deputy whips said legislative language would be presented to rank-and-file GOP members Tuesday morning during a regularly scheduled closed-door conference meeting.
The legislation was not yet finalized Monday evening, but the bill was expected to cost less than $1 billion and include a collection of recommendations made by the House GOP border working group. — Source
