114th Congress to work five day week? Really, let’s see.
The Senate schedule promises 31 five day weeks, 7 four day weeks, and no three day weeks for a total of 183 working days.
The House schedule promises no five day weeks, 29 four day weeks, and 4 three day weeks for a total of 128 working days.
I give Senator Wicker credit for being mostly right. I don’t know why the House plans to work less than 70% as many days as the Senate, but it may be better that they don’t. It remains to be seen if the Senate will really work forty hours during those planned five day weeks.
