Congress Adjourned for Summer Recess Yesterday

While most people think that the Senate pulled out of town on Thursday and the House on Friday, the last day of work for the two bodies was Tuesday and Monday respectively. The House adopted H. Con. Res. 112 on Monday ‘without objection’. The Senate took up the resolution yesterday and passed it by a voice vote. There is no official tally of how many members were present in either body, but I doubt it was more than three, the designated presiding officer and a standard bearer from each party. The formalities took just minutes to complete.

Both bodies will reconvene on September 8th.
