D.C. Snow Storm Shuts Down Congress


The U.S. House of Representatives won’t convene on Monday due to a snow storm in Washington, D.C.

Legislative business has been postponed until Tuesday afternoon, Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) office informed members. Weather conditions could spur further changes to the schedule, but as of now, the first House votes of the week are expected Tuesday evening.

The Senate is expected to gavel into session on Monday, as Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

But Reid’s office announced that votes have been postponed to noon on Tuesday.
