(NAFB)--Current House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has announced the House will take up the Fiscal Year 2015 Defense Appropriations bill and bill reauthorizing the Commodity Futures Trading Commission on Wednesday - but there’s still no word on when floor action will begin again on the ag appropriations bill. House Republicans will hold an election Thursday for a new majority leader. The Hagstrom Report says it’s expected House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy will win - which would call for an election for a new majority whip. The Senate will begin considering the ag appropriations bill today (Tuesday) - along with the Fiscal Year 2015 Commerce Justice State bill and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill. A Senate aide told The Hagstrom Report consideration is expected to take at least a week.
