If so, then I would agree with RWM; this would curtail the often used (and, arguably, abused) power of the Executive office to make recess appointments. Otherwise, all any President need do is wait until the Senate is in recess and make all of their appointments without either advice or consent. Or, as was argued by this administration, the President could simply determine that the Senate was in recess at any time of thier chosing and make their appointments whenever they felt like it.
