Just a quick note that both the Senate and the House have officially been gaveled to a close until after the November elections. The Senate is scheduled to come back for a lame duck session on November 17th to try once again at passing the Coburn Omnibus.

Right after the House passed the bailout bill today, they voted overwhelmingly to pass the most-viewed bill on OpenCongress, H.R. 6867 – Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008.

Looking at the 5,000+ comments on that bill page, it’s obvious there are a lot of people hoping the Senate will also take up and pass that bill when they come back in November.
