House Adjourns, Senate To Return Aug. 6 To Work Through Backlog

Lawmakers have historically taken a month off during August, but this year, some of them will still be working on the hill. While the House of Representatives adjourned Thursday, The Senate will only take one week off.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cancelled the August recess last month, saying the Democrats have been obstructionists, and Senators would need to work through a back-log of bills.

The upper chamber will have next week off, but return to the capitol the following week.
The House will have a lot on their plate, including legislation on family separations, Russian sanctions, border wall funding and a second tax bill, when they get back in September.
