More on the House Blow-Up

By August 3, 2007Miscellaneous

CQ Politics has just posted a good blow-by-blow account of the uproar over the held/closed/changed vote last night on the House floor.

AP has more here.

UPDATE (2:45 p.m.) Boy, what a disaster today. The House voting computers have broken down, and now there are disputes over a tally on a motion by Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) to adjourn. ….OK, now they’re recessing to fix the machines….Wilson’s motion was withdrawn.

UPDATE (3:15 p.m.): From CQ:

Energy legislation remained in limbo Friday, stalled by tight vote counts, partisan squabbling and fresh veto threats from the White House. Floor consideration was likely to be delayed until Saturday at best.

Democrats at midday were considering making changes to the energy tax package (HR 2776) to placate oil-state Democrats upset about treatment of the oil and gas industry.
