House in Recess, Senate Still in Session

The House has now started its traditional August recess, and will not return until after Labor Day.  After the announcement from Majority Leader McConnell earlier in July that the chamber would stay in for at least a part of August, the Senate is still in session this week.

After failing to pass a healthcare bill last week, the Senate this week is considering a number of nominations.
