House Republicans plan to release their legislative agenda for the next Congress Thursday morning during an event at a hardware store in Sterling Va.
The agenda will focus on five areas: jobs, spending, health care, national security and reforming Congress itself. Within these five general areas there is a breakdown of about four points per topic, making it roughly a 20-point plan. They are still working on the draft of the blueprint.
There is some discussion regarding social issues, but it's not one of the five areas they focus on.
The basis for the agenda came from voters' concerns expressed at town hall meetings and comments collected from an Internet project called America Speaking Out.
The Republican leadership plans to present the agenda to the GOP conference on Wednesday.
