Congress formally adjourns until Sept. 10

Vote eliminates need for pro forma sessions over August.

The House and Senate formally adjourned until Sept. 10 on Tuesday morning eliminating the need for pro forma sessions over the August break.

The House voted to adjourn, reversing itself after all Democrats and 78 Republicans voted last week to defeat the Senate's adjournment resolution, during a pro forma session.

As a result of the House's action, the Senate stands in adjournment until 2 p.m. on Sept. 10, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin's office said.
