WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic National Committee's rulemaking body is recommending a 2016 presidential voting schedule that begins with the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1 and follows with voting that month in New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

The Democrats' rules and bylaws committee met Friday in Washington. The full DNC decides the calendar in August.

The Democratic calendar sticks closely to the framework laid out by the Republican National Committee. The GOP plan allows for those four states to vote in February but doesn't specify dates.

Democrats recommend that the New Hampshire primary be held on Feb. 9, the Nevada caucuses no earlier than Feb. 20, and the South Carolina primary on Feb. 27.

Under that calendar, Iowa retains its first-to-vote status while New Hampshire continues to hold the nation's first primary.
