WASHINGTON, DC - June 30: Empty seats line the Republican side of the dais as Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., speaks during the Senate Finance "mock" markup, which he adjourned without proceeding on draft measures to implement pending trade agreements with Colombia, South Korea and Panama along with a renewal of expired Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) benefits for workers.

Committee rules require at least one member of each party be in attendance to conduct committee business. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
