Hill Leaders to Meet With Obama on Tuesday

Posted July 26, 2010 at 8:17pm

Congressional leaders will head to the White House on Tuesday for their regularly scheduled bipartisan, bicameral meeting with President Barack Obama.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) will meet with Obama at 11 a.m. to discuss “unfinished legislative business,” according to a Democratic leadership aide.

There is no announced agenda, but leadership aides in both parties speculated Monday that one point of discussion will be whether to allow tax cuts enacted during the George W. Bush administration to expire at the end of the year.

Obama will deliver a statement after the meeting, then host a lunch with undisclosed House Members.
