The advocacy group Heritage Action is pushing the House to support a more conservative alternative to the Republican budget plan ahead of a planned vote Thursday, The Hill reported.

According to The Hill, the group put out a key vote alert telling members to vote for an amendment that would replace the current plan with the Republican Study Committee's budget, a proposal offered by the conservative GOP caucus in July.

"Taken as a whole, the RSC's 'Securing America's Future Economy' demonstrates a seriousness of purpose when it comes to governing," Heritage Action spokesman Dan Holler said in a statement, The Hill reported.

"If passed, this budget would provide a fiscally responsible path forward for our nation, limit the size and scope of our bloated federal government, and unleash economic prosperity for all Americans."

The budget is headed for a floor vote Thursday — and it will set the stage for tax reform, which the GOP hopes to pass using the filibuster-proof budget reconciliation process, The Hill reported.

The RSC is the largest GOP subgroup in the House, counting more than half of Republicans in the lower chamber among its ranks.
