Reid Announces Additional Recess Days in January

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) “on Monday announced a revised 2011 schedule that includes a lengthier January recess,” Roll Call reports.

The 112th Congress is still set to begin Wednesday, Jan. 5, but the Senate will adjourn at the end of that week for a two-week recess to mark the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. That recess will span Jan. 10 to Jan. 21. Under a previous version of the 2011 calendar, the Senate was scheduled to be in session from Jan. 5 to Jan. 14, with Members getting just a four-day recess from Jan. 17 to Jan. 21.

    I’d like the Senate to get back to work as quickly as possibly. Much is to be done.
