Senate Will Get Two Breaks in November

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced Wednesday that the Senate will not be in session Nov. 11-13 and will take off the entire week of Thanksgiving, even though the chamber could be in session until Christmas to deal with health care reform.When Reid announced earlier this month that he was canceling the Columbus Day recess, he had indicated he would try to give Senators some time off around Veterans’ Day, which is Nov. 11.Leadership aides in both parties have said that they expect the chamber to be in session well into December and that weekend sessions may become necessary to complete the Senate’s workload.
