Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority in the House after Democrats erased a two-to-one advantage in November, part of the party's first big wave of victories since Republican Donald Trump won the White House last year.

Republicans in the House and Senate are also in the final stages of reconciling tax overhaul legislation, including a proposal to scrap Obamacare's individual mandate, which imposes a tax penalty on Americans who do not obtain health insurance.
