House closes shop for remainder of the week

By Paul Kane
As Washington prepares for the next blizzard, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) has shuttered the chamber for the remainder of the week. The closure will be followed by a planned weeklong break after the Feb. 15 President's Day holiday.

Hoyer told reporters that, after closing the House for legislative activities Tuesday, leadership decided to cancel the remaining action for this week. With next week's planned recess, the House will not return to session until the week of Feb. 22. To make up for days lost to snow, the House plans to be in session both Monday and Friday of that week.

More productive work will be done in the house this week than was done any previous week in history.
