The Senate comes back to work on 8 September and leaves for reelection activities on 19 September. Based on their past performance, will they act and pass legislation, before the 19th?

Unless some GOP Senators have flipped, it won’t make it past a filibuster.
“On April 30, the minimum wage bill was derailed when senators voted 54-42 to begin debating the legislation — six votes short of the 60 needed to keep the measure moving forward. Every Republican but one voted against the bill.”
