U.S. Senator Steve Daines is among a group of just over a dozen of Republican colleagues asking their Majority leader to continue working through the traditional August recess. Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester said he also didn’t have a problem staying in August.
Daines told reporters during a telephone press call he didn’t think it was right for Congress to take a break when the people’s business is unfinished. It’s a reference to several government spending bills and nominations that await action.
