The House of Representatives and Senate have been scheduled to wrap up their work on July 28 ahead of the annual August recess, with both chambers returning to Washington on September 5. However, Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) announced earlier this month that the Senate would remain in session for a couple of weeks in August to allow for time to advance Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal and replace legislation, along with other items like raising the federal government’s debt limit. With the ACA effort having stalled when the Senate GOP was unable to secure the votes to approve the repeal and replace bill, there is some uncertainty as to when the Senate will adjourn for August. The House is still planning to leave DC on July 28, with the caveat that it could be in session during August should the Senate pass an ACA repeal bill.
