We've all heard Congress is in recess more than it's actually in session, but there's more to the story.
It turns out Congress working during August is actually against the law.
Congress will recess for its summer break next Friday because the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 says it has to according to the Washington Post.
In fact the House and Senate shall recess, "not later than July 31 of each year...to the second day after Labor Day."
