The reproductive rights demonstration outside the Texas Capitol on Monday seems to have lasted longer than the actual legislative session it was intended to bolster. After taking a roll call and discussing official time-keeping methods, the Texas Senate voted to recess until July 9 at 11 a.m.
According to a report from the Associated Press, the Senate gallery was "full but calm" during the lightning-fast meeting.
Republicans have vowed to use the special legislative session to pass the restrictive abortion ban that state Sen. Wendy Davis and her Democratic colleagues defeated with a marathon filibuster last week, but that certainly didn't happen today.

The House is also adjourned until next week, but there will be a committee meeting held tomorrow.
