The leadership meeting in Speaker Boehner’s office just broke up, and Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) told reporters that the entire House GOP conference will meet at 9:45 p.m. ET, presumably to discuss the pending budget deal, TPM’s Brian Beutler reports from the Hill.
We’re told it’s a members only meeting. No staff.
Harry Reid was reportedly set to make a floor speech in the Senate at 10:30 p.m. ET (a speech that reports have kept pushing back over the course of the evening), but his spokesperson tweets:
Despite tweets, Reid not scheduled to go to floor. We are still negotiating. Will advise if he will make a speech.
