The House is debating two bills at the moment. One is the legislation passed on Christmas Eve by the Senate. You can download a .pdf of the whole thing here (but be warned that it’s 2,409 pages long).
The other is this separate reconciliation bill that makes money-related changes to the Senate bill.
If all that legalese is more than you can take, the House Ways and Means Committee has prepared a brief summary of the main points of the legislation written in regular English. Or you can consult this slightly more detailed section-by-section summary.
If you’re interested in what this legislation would mean in terms of expanding insurance coverage and the effect on the federal budget, you’ll need to look at this analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
