US House GOP starts Thanksgiving recess early after hardliners revolt on spending bill

Source: Axios

“House Republicans are leaving D.C. early for Thanksgiving recess after a group of conservatives brought down a procedural vote on an appropriations bill. … Nineteen conservative hardliners bucked party lines on a procedural vote for the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, with the rule failing in a 198-225 vote on Wednesday. Its failure comes a day after the House passed its two-tier stopgap spending bill, which conservatives blasted for keeping spending levels intact from the previous fiscal year. … Congress will have until mid-January to come together on the appropriations or risk an automatic 1% cut going into effect this spring if they have to pass another stopgap bill.” (11/15/23)
