House To Return Monday After Thanksgiving

The House will reconvene on the Monday following Thanksgiving -- and could be in session up until three days prior to Christmas, according to a statement released today by Majority Leader Hoyer.

According to the statement, the House is expected to be in session during the weeks of Nov. 30, Dec. 7, and Dec. 14. Hoyer had previously indicated that the House would meet the week of Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, but it had previously been unclear how quickly House members would be summoned back to Washington after the Thanksgiving break.

 

"The House could also be in session on Monday, Dec. 21, and Tuesday, Dec. 22, if needed," Hoyer's statement added.

"As action on health insurance reform legislation moves to the Senate, the House is updating its schedule for November and December to reflect that, and to ensure there is time to complete our work on other important issues," Hoyer said. The statement did not address which issues would see floor time next month.

The House has been in recess this week following passage of its version of healthcare reform legislation last Saturday. It will reconvene next week, and then be in recess the week of Nov. 23 for Thanksgiving.
