Days in Session: House

by

Following up on Daniel’s post from last week, here’s a chart showing the days in session for the House going back to 1947. I wrote a report about this back in 2006, but it’s been lost in the ether of both my crashed PC (I’m not a PC because my PC crashed and burned) and the various Sunlight site redesigns.
