Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, has asked House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to cancel Congress’s September recess as lawmakers begin to address the issue of a possible attack in Syria.

The Des Moines Register’s Jennifer Jacobs tweeted this morning that Braley pushed for the cancellation in a press release, saying Congress needed also to work on the federal budget and a farm bill.
