Congress and missed work weeks

The House and Senate are not in session today, Presidents’ Day. However, neither are they tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The same is true for two more weeks near the end of March and the first part of April. During the remainder of the year there are several more such weeks. Take a look at the calendars: House and Senate. You will note some differences in the two calendars.

A different Senate calendar refers to these weeks as “State Work Period.”

It’s not a matter of nothing to do. Yesterday, in The Indianapolis Star, a USA Today graphic was included that shows the looming deadlines beginning with funding for the Department of Homeland Security with a deadline of February 27th with others to come up in the following weeks.

What are your thoughts on these calendars?
