The article reports on the suggestion made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the U.S. Reid proposed that lawmakers should extend until Christmas to finish the must-pass bills. Based on the current House calendar, the first session will end on October 26, 2007 thus lawmakers have plenty of time to go back to their districts but early adjournment is not realized because lawmakers usually stayed until December to complete the appropriation of the bills before members have their vacation.
