Lame Duck Session

 

 

A lame duck session is the last legislative session that a lame duck participates in prior to leaving office.

 

Example:

 

President Habeeb was not looking forward to the lame duck session as it would be much more difficult to accomplish his goals as it was his last legislative session before the new president took office.

Some lawmakers who return for this session will not be in the next Congress. Hence, they are informally called "lame duck" members participating in a "lame duck" session.
