Members of the U.S. House voted 222-171 Thursday to bring an Affordable Care Act employer mandate tweak bill and another measure up for a vote by the full House next week.
House members approved House Resolution 1059.
The resolution sets the rules for debate for H.R. 3798, the “Save American Workers Act of 2017″ bill. That’s the ACA employer mandate tweak bill.
The resolution also sets the rules for debate of a “conference report” accompanying H.R. 5895 — an energy and water development appropriations bill.
The House and Senate originally approved different versions of the H.R. 5895. The conference report is a measure that irons out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill.
House Resolution 1059 lets House leaders bring H.R. 3798 and the H.R. 5895 conference report up for debate on the House floor on any day from Sept. 17 through Sept. 24.
The resolution provides for just one hour of floor debate on H.R. 3798.
