I heard "extension"...I didn't switch over until this thread was posted.
Senate just adjourned...what is "sine dai" (sp)?
That means the 109th Congress is over. It has essentially ceased to exist, as opposed to being in recess.
sine die -- all Latin vowels are voiced -- "see-nay dee-ay" -- it's Latin for "without a day." They haven't set a date to reconvene.
