Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE TWO - By John Hel­ton

WASH­ING­TON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thurs­day that the House will be in ses­sion next week in­stead of tak­ing a re­cess week and con­tinue to work on leg­is­la­tion to end the gov­ern­ment shut­down.

“We have can­celed our dis­trict work pe­riod next week to stay here to work on leg­is­la­tion to open up gov­ern­ment, to con­tinue our on­go­ing drum­beat of bills to open up gov­ern­ment, start­ing with bills that the Repub­li­cans them­selves passed in the Se­nate but now won't take up,” Pelosi said. “But we'll go to the next step next week on that.”

While Pelosi did not spec­ify what those bills were, she later dropped a hint when she re­sponded to a ques­tion about why Democrats aren't pre­sent­ing Repub­li­cans a counter of­fer on what they'd be will­ing to fund for bor­der se­cu­rity.
