Like many other Republicans, Rep. Lynn Jenkins of Kansas wasn’t too impressed with the work of Congress during its lame-duck period this month. And she’s trying to do something about it. Jenkins proposed a bill earlier this year to forbid lame-duck sessions except in the case of a national emergency, and she says the bill could gain momentum next year, The Hill reports.

“Usually, when you get fired, you are escorted to the door. You’re not allowed to linger for months and wreak havoc with the nation, and which is precisely what I think the potential is.”
