Action remained slow on Capitol Hill this week as Members of Congress remained in their home states and districts.
August Recess Continues
With one week to go, Members of Congress remained in their home states and districts for the month-long August recess. They are expected to return to Capitol Hill on Monday, September 9th. Until then, many Members of Congress will attend local events and hold town hall meetings. The Senior Citizens League (TSCL) encourages its members and supporters to attend town halls before the end of the August recess, since they are an excellent opportunity for constituents to voice their concerns and have their most pressing questions answered.
The following Members of Congress, among others, will hold town halls this weekend: Sens. Jeff Merkley (OR), Mitch McConnell (KY), and Mark Lee (UT), and Reps. Larry Bucshon (IN-8), Kevin Cramer (ND), Kristi Noem (SD), Tom Petri (WI-6), Scott Tipton (CO-3), Todd Young (IN-9), John Barrow (GA-12), and Scott Peters (CA-52).
