Congress Adjourns to Campaign
October 12, 2016

Congress adjourned on September 29, after maneuvering a stopgap spending bill through both chambers the day before. Lawmakers then hit the campaign trail for the 2016 general election.

Regardless of the election outcome, both the U.S. House and Senate will be back in session for a “lame-duck” session of Congress in November and December to complete unfinished business. During the recess, PIA National will continue to meet with staff to advocate for our issues.
