Events of Interest: Week of January 8-13, 2012

The following events may be of interest in the week ahead.   The House and Senate are meeting in non-legislative pro forma sessions every three days (this tactic has been used in the past to prevent Presidents from making “recess appointments” while Congress is in recess, but President Obama has decided to challenge that interpretation of what constitutes a recess and made several recess appointments nonetheless).  The House returns for legislative business on January 17; the Senate on January 23.
