Here for the rest of it:
Unlike their counterparts in the Senate, who have taken steps to pass the bill quickly, the House is in no rush to act.
In one important way, the roles between the two chambers are reversed. There is a long-standing Washington tradition in which the House passes bills and the Senate ceremonially (and proudly) ignores them. This time, the House is the saucer that will cool the Senate's tea. Or, to put it another way, House Republicans want to slow-jam the immigration bill; Senate Democrats are thinking more Busta Rhymes.
For the moment, the House seems to be enjoying the role-reversal. Some aren't even reading the Senate version at all.
“I have not gone through chapter and verse on the Senate bill," Roskam said. "I don’t think I’m going to be voting on the Senate bill, so it’s not as if I’m marinating in study.”
