House Speaker John Boehner has not ruled out calling members of the House back to Washington to address potential military action in Syria, a spokesman says.
Asked if representatives - not due to return to Capitol Hill until September 9 - could be called back early due to the situation in Syria, spokesman Michael Steel said that "the Speaker hasn't ruled it out."
For Congress to return from its scheduled five-week recess, both Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry would have to call back their respective chambers.
That action would likely be at the behest of a request from President Barack Obama.
