The House and Senate schedules below are adopted from the schedules published by the House (PDF) and by the Senate.

In the House, a “House Recess” is also called a “District Work Week” or “Constituent Work Week,” when House members return to their home districts to meet with constituents. In the Senate, these home state visits are called “State Work Periods/Weeks” and take place during “Senate recesses.”

* The president is required by law (31 USC 1105) to submit his annual budget proposal to Congress by the first Monday in February. In a new administration, the president typically submits a placeholder document and fills in the details some weeks later.
