House scraps Tuesday night votes as Senate stays on track to kickoff stopgap action

The House has scrapped Tuesday night votes as cold weather and snow continue to disrupt travel in much of the country. But the Senate is still on track to kick off action on a stopgap spending package.

The House will still gavel in to debate some broadly noncontroversial bills, but the chamber has pushed the first votes of the week to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The Senate schedule — so far — remains intact. The stakes are higher in the upper chamber, with action expected Tuesday night on the stopgap spending package released over the weekend. The Senate is scheduled to vote to move forward on the continuing resolution at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

CR refresher: The spending deal released over the weekend includes two separate deadlines, with funding for some federal agencies would expire March 1, while funding for others would run through March 8.

Air report: The closest airport to Capitol Hill, Reagan National Airport, was fully closed for many hours Monday night with flights diverted up and down the East Coast. This could spell fly-in trouble as senators attempt to get to Washington for the votes.
