House committee members adjourned Friday without voting on SOPA and said they would reconsider the legislation in 2012. Over the weekend, however, House leadership announced that the chamber would be in session on Monday and Tuesday and possibly on Wednesday.
"The ... Stop Online Piracy Act markup will resume on Wednesday at 9am if the House is in session," a spokeswoman said today. "We do not have any additional information at this time."
This raised the possibility that SOPA would pass the Judiciary committee this week anyway.
Fortunately, this new hearing has now been cancelled. In addition to the tweet from Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) at the top of this post, the House Judiciary committee website has confirmed the cancellation:scheduled for a vote on Jan. 24.
