House Gang or Eight Might Introduce Bill Before Senate Finishes

Rate this Entry

Jon Yarmuth, the Kentucky Democrat, says that negotiations are almost complete and his colleagues are almost ready to announce the results of their efforts. The breaking news here is the suggestion that the House might start working on their bill instead of waiting on the Senate. From Elise Foley at Huffington Post:



"I think we're actually very close to being able to come forward with
a package of very important commonsense reform proposals," Yarmuth said
on MSNBC's "Jansing & Co." "We've really resolved all of the truly
contentious issues, so now it's a lot of detail work and some loose
ends."


The House group -- which MSNBC listed as Yarmuth and Reps. Zoe
Lofgren (D-Calif.), Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), Raul Labrador (R-Idaho),
Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), John Carter (R-Texas) and Sam Johnson
(R-Texas) -- has been working quietly on an immigration reform plan for
years, but remained secretive about when and how they will release it.


Yarmuth said one of the biggest questions is how they ensure their
bill can pass the Republican-controlled House, which will be a heavier
lift than the Democratic-controlled Senate. The so-called "gang of
eight" in the upper chamber plans to unveil a bill next month and has
already put out a framework, but the House group still must decide
whether to wait until a Senate bill passes or introduce their own
legislation sooner.


They may be leaning toward the latter, Yarmuth hinted.
