House of Representatives 2014 Work Calendar Released

Yesterday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the 2014 House of Representatives calendar. The House of Representatives is scheduled to be in session 113 days next year.  The rest of the calendar is devoted to district work periods where lawmakers are back home working with constituents.  The number of calendar days in Washington, DC is on par with those of recent years.  In what is typical for an election year, the House will look to finish up its work around October 2, 2014 and then be back home until after the election.  Start scheduling those Hill days, fly-ins, and 2014 vacations…but the calendar, of course, is always subject to change.
