Guide: Congressional Session Chart

A complete guide to the Sessions of Congress which includes the beginning and ending dates, recesses, number of days in the session, the name of the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tem of the Senate, may be found online by searching the Congressional Directory.


IUB library users may also find the charts included in ProQuest Congressional helpful since they include specific dates for each session.
