U.S. senators no longer have to dress to impress.
Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday that staff for the chamber’s Sergeant-at-Arms will no longer be tasked with enforcing a dress code on the Senate floor.
With Congress debating a possible government shutdown and whether there should be age limits for lawmakers, the Senate’s dress code change comes to mostly accommodate Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman, who unapologetically wears his trademark hoodies and shorts as does his duties. Fetterman often votes from doorways or sticks his head inside the chambers to avoid getting into trouble for his more casual wear.
