WASHINGTON--House members were told Thursday to return to Washington Sunday night--with only hours remaining to avoid the Dec. 31 fiscal cliff deadline.

House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), via Twitter said "The House will return for legislative business on Sunday, December 30. First votes are expected at 6:30 p.m."

GOP House members learned about the last minute effort to avoid the fiscal cliff during a 2:30 p.m. conference call.
