1. The vote was delayed to today, Wedns.

"A bipartisan bill requiring broader operational audits of the U.S. Federal Reserve is poised to pass the House Wednesday.

The measure would permit government auditors to conduct deeper audits of the Fedís monetary policy operations. Despite opposition from some Democrats and the Federal Reserve, the bill has at least 274 cosponsors, including more than three dozen Democrats facing difficult reelection campaigns.

The bill will be considered under the suspension of normal House rules, meaning it will require at least a two-thirds majority to pass. Aides to top Republican and Democratic leaders said they expect the vote to pass by a close margin."
