The problem of course, is that there's really no difference between a recess and a pro forma session. It's effectively a recess, called a session for no other reason than to block recess appointments.

The administration called the bluff. They got bit by it in court, but we haven't heard the last word of it yet.

It doesn't strip the Senate of shit. It will just invalidate pro forma sessions as a loophole used by the minority to block recess appointments.
