House to return Sunday night to debate fiscal cliff

House Republicans on a conference call Thursday were told that the House of Representatives will be in session on Sunday with votes expected after 6:30 p.m., according to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's office.

That means members will have less than 30 hours to vote before the end-of-the-year-deadline.

The Senate and President Obama returned to Washington Thursday.
