WASHINGTON, Dec 31, The U.S. House of
Representatives will consider legislation to avert the "fiscal
cliff" if the Senate passes such a measure, House Speaker John
Boehner said on Monday.
"The House will honor its commitment to consider the Senate
agreement if it is passed. Decisions about whether the House
will seek to accept or promptly amend the measure will not be
made until House members ... have been able to review the
legislation," Boehner and other House Republican leaders said in
A House vote could come as early as Tuesday.
