The office of Republican Whip Steve Scalise announced the schedule Thursday.

Scalise's office says lawmakers are waiting on the Senate. But Senate already approved a bill to keep government running. The House panned that measure and approved a new version that included money for President Donald Trump's border wall.

They are at a stalemate.

Scalise's office says, "Please stay tuned to future updates for more information."
