The Senate Executive Calendar identifies executive resolutions, treaties, and nominations awaiting floor acton.  

Schedules, which differ from calendars, indicate what the House and Senate intend to discuss on a particular day.

These calendars list the days the Senate met for each session of Congress.

The Senate and House of Representatives first met in New York City's Federal Hall in March 1789.  Since that time, they have occupied numerous meeting places and quarters.

If you are seeking general information on the Senate, the legislative branch and process, or on the federal government, the Virtual Reference Desk is a good place to begin. Links are arranged broadly by subject and may take you to PDF documents, useful sources on the Web, or other Senate Web pages.



Democratic National Convention in Boston, MA is July 26-29, 2004.

Republican National Convention in New York, NY is August 30-Sept 2, 2004
