The GOP leadership has set up a floor process that would allow the chamber to vote on the Senate bill if they cannot pass their own version of the domestic violence legislation.
The Republican bill — which has encountered rough water — will be set up as an amendment to the Senate’s bipartisan bill. And if that amendment fails — which Republican insiders expect — the House would then vote on the Senate’s bill.
House action starts tomorrow, when the chamber will vote on the rule for debate. Final passage is expected on Thursday — the last day in session for the week.
