Washington Times -- Stephen Dinan

House Republican leaders Monday abruptly canceled votes this week on their border security bill, blaming the weather but also earning more time to work out disagreements within their own caucus that had threatened to scuttle the legislation.

Under the new schedule announced Monday afternoon, the House will no longer vote on any bills Monday evening, but will spend Tuesday and Wednesday working on bills dealing with human trafficking and liquid natural gas.

The border bill had been planned for debate on Wednesday, but is no longer on the schedule. The House will take a short vacation Thursday and Friday for Democrats to hold their annual policy retreat.
