Action on Capitol Hill was slow this week as Members of Congress remained in their home states and districts for the holiday recess.
Holiday Recess Continues
This week, Members of Congress remained in their home states and districts to continue the holiday recess that is now in its second week. Members of the Senate are expected to return to Washington on Monday, April 8th, and Members of the House are expected to return on Tuesday, April 9th. Negotiations on establishing a 2014 budget will likely resume at that time, as President Obama is set to release his plan – which will include changes to Social Security and Medicare – next week.
In the meantime, TSCL would like to remind you that many Senators and Representatives will attend local events or schedule town hall meetings while they are in their home states and districts, giving constituents an excellent opportunity to voice their concerns. We encourage you to approach your Members of Congress and request their support for fair cost-of-living adjustments, Notch fairness, a permanent “doc fix,” and other key issues.
The following Members of Congress, among others, will hold town hall meetings in the upcoming days:
- Rep. John Barrow (GA-12)
- Rep. Xavier Becerra (CA-34)
- Rep. Jim Himes (CT-4)
- Rep. Hank Johnson (GA-4)
- Rep. Gary Peters (MI-14)
- Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-5)
- Rep. Diane Black (TN-6)
- Rep. Mick Mulvaney (SC-5)
- Rep. David Price (NC-4)
- Rep. Tom Reed (NY-23)
- Rep. William Keating (MA-9)
- Rep. Tom McClintock (CA-4)
