109th Congress isn't done yet
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The 109th Congress may commence with a lame duck session Monday, but House Majority leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, has penned a busy agenda for its first week.

The House will convene at 2:00 p.m. Monday to consider 18 bills this week, including one that authorizes the extensions of normal trade relations with Vietnam, according to Boehner. All votes on Monday will be postponed until 6:30 p.m.

The House is also slated to consider a continuing resolution, authorizing the last fiscal year's budget to remain in effect into the new year, Tuesday or Wednesday.GOP leadership elections for the next term are slated Friday.

With House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Illinois, stepping aside, current House Majority leader John Boehner is vying for the minority leader position when his party cedes control to the Democrats in January. He faces challenges from Reps. Mike Pence of Indiana and Rep. Joe Barton of Texas.
