The House will vote on a resolution on Thursday to relieve Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., From her committee duties, said Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
The move comes amid resounding criticism of Greene for a series of extreme remarks she made prior to winning her congressional seat and increasing pressure on Republican leaders to reprimand or condemn these comments.
Kevin McCarthy, minority chairman of the House of Representatives in California, met with Greene in his Capitol building Tuesday night. He made no immediate comment after the discussion.
"I spoke to Leader McCarthy this morning and it is clear that there is no alternative to having a vote on the decision to remove Rep. Greene from her committee duties," Hoyer said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The regulatory committee will meet this afternoon and the House will vote on the resolution tomorrow," said Hoyer.
