With another major snowstorm bearing down on Washington, the House of Representatives has cancelled all votes for the rest of the week.

"Due to inclement weather affecting travel to Washington, D.C, Members are advised that there will be no recorded votes taken in the House this week," according to an email from the Majority Leader's office.

Because next week is the President's Day recess, the decision means no votes will be taken in House until Tuesday, Feb. 22nd.

"The change this week means that we will add two days to the schedule as we look to take action on a jobs bill and other critical measures," said Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. "Therefore, the House will reconvene on Monday, February 22, one day earlier than previously scheduled. The House will now also be in session on Friday, February 26th."
