Good morning, folks-

Just a few items of note before the schedule:

Boehner’s pen-and-pad session with reporters will be held this morning in the H-107 conference room in the Capitol at 11:30 a.m. SHARP.

I expect we could add one more suspension to the calendar this week on energy: a bill encouraging research and development of hydrogen sources.

H.R. 4681 – Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006-which was previously listed on the schedule for consideration today will NOT be considered this week.
