White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and Energy Secretary Rick Perry brief reporters on Tuesday afternoon.

Sanders will likely face a flurry of questions about the Senate's Obamacare replacement bill, as Republican leaders push to pass the plan this week in the face of opposition from several GOP senators. She may also address Monday's Congressional Budget Office report estimating that the plan would lead to 22 million more uninsured Americans in 2026, conclusions that the White House questioned on Monday.

The on-camera appearance comes amid complaints from media outlets following a series of off-camera briefings.

Originally, Sean Spicer was scheduled to hold the briefing, but Sanders replaced him.
