Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today spoke on the Senate floor on S.Res. 376, a resolution regarding the Senate dress code. Below are Senator Schumer’s remarks:
In a minute, my friend from West Virginia will submit a resolution regarding the Senate dress code.
Though we’ve never had an official dress code, the events over the past week have made us all feel as though formalizing one is the right path forward.
I deeply appreciate Senator Fetterman working with me to come to an agreement that we all find acceptable, and of course I appreciate Senator Manchin and Senator Romney’s leadership on this issue.
