Peace Out! House Cancels Work Until After Election Day

The House of Representatives will adjourn until after the midterm election once legislative business is completed on Thursday.

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) office announced the schedule change on Thursday, canceling a work day on Friday as well as the entire week of Sept. 29.

That means the House won’t return to session until Nov. 12, the week after Election Day.

McCarthy’s announcement suggested that the House could return to session if the Senate failed to pass the House-approved bill to keep the government open beyond Sept. 30.
