During a session with reporters Tuesday morning, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) wouldn't say whether the rules package was in jeopardy because of the OCE overhaul. He referred questions about it to the House whip, but, the emergency meeting may indicated the package is in jeopardy.
Tuesday is officially the first day of the new Congress with new members actually being sworn in. The House was supposed to vote on the entire rules package later Tuesday afternoon.
