WASHINGTON, D.C. – Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate leadership have granted a request by Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) and Sens. Perdue, Daines, Strange, Tillis, Ernst, Lankford, Rounds, Sullivan and Lee to work during the August recess.

“I’m pleased Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate leadership have agreed to delay the August recess for two weeks.  I would prefer to stay the entire month of August, but I will take what I can get.  This delay of recess is not just about health care, it’s about tax reform, infrastructure, the debt ceiling, the budget, and the reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “I am ready to work in order to deliver meaningful results to the American people.”
