Mr. CANTOR. Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman, the Democratic whip, and refer him to the announcement that came out from my office that we intend for the Senate to act on the continuing resolution sometime today and to receive it here in the House either this afternoon or evening.

As per the announcement that we sent out, the House will meet at 10 a.m. for morning-hour tomorrow on Saturday, at noon for legislative business, and Members are advised that we could vote at any point tomorrow or Sunday until the situation surrounding the CR is resolved.

Mr. HOYER. I thank the gentleman for his comments.

Would it be safe to tell the Members there will be no votes before 1 o'clock tomorrow, do you think?

Mr. CANTOR. Mr. Speaker, I would respond to the gentleman, yes, that would be correct.

Mr. HOYER. I thank the gentleman.

Does the gentleman intend to meet on Sunday if we have acted on the CR tomorrow?

Mr. CANTOR. Mr. Speaker, I would say to the gentleman about Sunday's schedule, pending action tomorrow, I am hesitant to commit that there would be no votes on Sunday. I do know, Mr. Speaker, that we're dealing with a day of worship for many people, and would work with that fact as well, if that's the purpose of his question.

Mr. HOYER. I thank the gentleman for his response, and I yield back the balance of my time.
