After Quake, Senate in Session in Nearby Building

Tuesday, 23 Aug 2011 04:07 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate held an unusual session away from the Capitol after Tuesday's earthquake led to the evacuation of the building.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware presided over a 22-second technical session in a conference room in Postal Square, a building next to Union Station and two blocks northeast of the Capitol.

The session was necessary because Congress has not formally recessed, even though lawmakers are on a monthlong vacation.
