GOP Lawsuit Against Obama Takes Shape

"Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible--and likely tumultuous--three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions," National Journal reports.

Said a GOP aide: "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it. But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take."

"Rather, the aim is to display--if not actually engage in--a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on July 31 for its August-long summer break."
