Rep. Andy Harris, a Republican from nearby Maryland, has presided over at least six pro forma sessions since June.

When Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) introduced a resolution Tuesday criticizing Obama’s recess appointment, she urged the House to consider the measure “as soon as we return to Washington so we can send a message to President Obama.”

“The Congresswoman is so upset, she’s demanding action on her nonbinding resolution just as soon as she and her colleagues get back from vacation,” said a Democrat close to the Obama administration.
