Recess, Vacation

At the end of this week, Congress goes into recess and members can take their annual five-week summer vacation. I note that recently members of the House have taken to calling this recess things like "home district work period".

Accepting this sort of terminology and looking at the bright side, it is good to know that in one five-week period each year members of Congress actually do some work.
