Good news! Congress plans to hardly work at all next year as the members prepare for their re-election campaigns:
“But between Democratic and Republican retreats, House leaders have penciled in only eight working days for the entire month of January. That will be followed by a February composed of only nine full working days.
And with midterm elections looming, Democrats have targeted Friday, Oct. 8 as their final day in session.”
Here’s the complete schedule that includes lots of holidays, 3-day and 4-day workweeks, and October thru December off except for the first week of October.
