There is far less coordination this year between the House and Senate calendars.  House Members will work longer weeks in Washington, but will be in session for fewer weeks.  Representatives will be in their districts for seven weeks while the Senate is in session. 

The following calendars can be used as a guide for planning a trip to Washington.  Guidance on meeting with a representative or senator or congressional staff can be viewed here
