Reid Dangles Two-Week Thanksgiving Recess if Senate Expedites Legislation

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
Reid said the Senate plans to be off two weeks around Thanksgiving, if members can expedite work before that.

Reid also said he hopes Republicans will not force the Senate to burn the entire 30 hours of debate that was triggered after the Senate voted to invoke cloture Monday on the motion to proceed to ENDA.

“There is no reason to eat up the whole 30 hours that are post-cloture,” Reid said. “It may impinge upon the holidays” and upcoming weekends.
