Congress and the Senate head home for the August Recess

The House has adjourned and congressional representatives are headed back home to their districts across the country. The Senate will head into their recess next week. This six-week break provides members of congress an opportunity to get out into their communities and many will be hosting town halls to meet constituents. Learn more about events in your district here. This is a tremendous opportunity to get out and connect with your representatives. Your association is here and available to help you do just that. Please direct any inquiries to Samantha Beeler, VP Advocacy. 

Fun fact: The idea of a congressional recess was originally about the substantial increase in temperatures during the summer months. Later, year-long sessions and the demanding schedules on elected officials motivated the establishment of a summer break.
