According to a schedule released by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor - the U.S. House will not hold any votes on Friday this week.The last vote is slated for three o’clock Eastern Thursday afternoon.

No farm bill votes were taken Monday - as the House Rules Committee had not yet set the rule on the farm bill. House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson are expected to ask for a rule that allows debate on all subjects House members want to discuss - but limits the number of amendments on each subject.

The Rules Committee will meet Tuesday to issue a rule on how farm bill amendments will be handled on the House floor.
