Senate done voting until Nov. 14, setting up 'extremely busy' lame duck session

Source: The Hill

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday that senators will not return to Washington, D.C., to vote until Monday, Nov. 14, clearing the decks for vulnerable colleagues to campaign for five solid weeks until Election Day.

“For the information of all senators, the next roll call vote will be on [Monday], Nov. 14, at 5:30 p.m.,” Schumer said on the floor.

But he warned that Senate colleagues should expect an “extremely busy” lame duck session during the second half of November and all of December as they still have to consider a defense authorization bill, an omnibus spending package, a bill protecting the right to same-sex marriage and other items that haven’t made it to the floor yet.

“Members should be prepared for an extremely, underline extremely, busy agenda in the last two months of this Congress,” he said.

1. Conservative talk and Fox News are just beating the drums for Biden to fail.
