The House and Senate were both in adjournment by just a little after 2 p.m. on Friday, but more budget work is on tap for next week. The Senate will adjourn at 2 p.m. Monday and is expected to discuss plans for voting on a FY 2011 spending bill.

Earlier on Friday, Senate Republicans said they wanted more time to study a Democratic amendment to the House budget bill, although the Senate is ultimately expected to vote on both the House bill and the Democratic amendment.

The House returns Tuesday at 2 p.m. and is expected to hold at least two votes under a suspension of House rules. One vote is on H.R. 525, which would increase number of veterinarians trained in veterinary public health, and the second is on H.R. 570, which would enhance the role of dentists in the nation's disaster-response network.

Later in the week, the House is expected to debate and vote on H.R. 830 and H.R. 836, which would eliminate federal mortgage refinancing and emergency mortgage programs.
