Senate and House Republican leaders Monday called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to cut the House recess short and return to work on the Iraq supplemental spending bill. The Hill quoted a letter sent by Republican leadership to Pelosi, which stated:
“We are writing to urge you to call the House back into session immediately so that Congress can finish its work on the emergency legislation to fund the Global War on Terrorism.”
The House of Representatives is currently on its scheduled Spring recess, a two-week break that members usually devote to work in their district. The Senate reconvenes tomorrow, but the House is not scheduled to return until next week.
