Legislative Update for Week Ending August 15, 2014

Action on Capitol Hill was slow this week as Members of Congress remained in their home states and districts for the August recess.

August Recess Continues

The month-long August recess continued this week, and Members of the House and Senate remained in their home states and districts. They are expected to return to Washington on Monday, September 9th. Until then, many Members of Congress will attend local events and hold town hall meetings. The Senior Citizens League (TSCL) urges its members and supporters to attend town halls in the coming weeks, since they are an excellent opportunity for constituents to communicate with their elected officials and have their concerns addressed.

The following Members of Congress, among others, will hold town halls this weekend: Sen. Johnny Isakson (GA), Sen. Mike Lee (UT), Rep. Karen Bass (CA-37), Rep. Gene Green (TX-29), Rep. Vance McAllister (LA-5), Rep. Jared Polis (CO-2), Rep. Marc Veasey (TX-33), Rep. David Valadao (CA-21), Rep. Donna Edwards (MD-4), Rep. Brad Sherman (CA-30), Rep. Rob Woodall (GA-7), Rep. Tom Cole (OK-4), and Rep. Bill Pascrell (NJ-9).
