Look quickly, or it will be over....

The Senate, to avoid the possibility of recess appointments - which would undermine the Senate's power of confirmation - has regular 'pro forma' meetings. Further information on the legal issues is available here.
It also serves the purpose of satisfying the constitutional obligation that neither chamber can adjourn for more than three days without the consent of the other.

This one occured on Friday.
