Roy Blunt, Minority Whip of the United States House of Representatives, has issued an invitation to witness the actions of House members as they continue to speak to the American people about the need to act on our energy situation.
This is an opportunity for your children to see an unprecedented form of action on the part of our elected officials. If you are able to make the journey, HSLDA encourages your family to make the trip to the Capitol building.
Attendees should go to the Independence Avenue side of the Capitol and tell the Capitol Hill police they are going to HC-9. You will need a photo-identification for entrance. Cameras and cell phones will not be permitted in the chamber, but there will be a person in HC-9 to watch purses, bags etc.
If you have any problems once you arrive you should contact Melanie Looney of the Whip's office at 202-225-0197. House members will again take to the House floor beginning at the following times:Thursday, August 7, at 11:00 a.m. EasternFriday, August 8, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern
Hope you choose to take advantage of this opportunity.
