House could be called back for vote on payroll tax deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday said he would call the vacationing House of Representatives back into session next week if he fails to get unanimous consent on Friday for a payroll tax cut deal with the Senate.

Boehner said it was his goal to get unanimous consent - a way to pass legislation without a roll call vote - on the two-month extension of the expiring payroll tax cut.

The House is scheduled to hold a non-legislative session on Friday. Boehner said he would “absolutely” call back the House for a roll call vote if someone objects on Friday.
