House Democratic leaders on Tuesday said they plan to cancel next week's week-long recess unless a deal is reached before then to end the ongoing federal government shutdown.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, speaking to reporters, said the U.S. House of Representatives would come back into session on Jan. 22 for votes instead of taking its planned break that week for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

"If the government is not open we will not have a recess," he told reporters Tuesday.
