Kansas Senator Speaks Out on Dress Code Change


A Kansas lawmaker is speaking out after the announcement that the dress code will no longer be enforced in the U.S. Senate.


Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says staff for the chamber’s Sergeant-at-Arms will no longer enforce the dress code. Kansas Senator Roger Marshall is calling it a sad day in the Senate, saying senators should have a certain level of decorum. The change comes after Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman has been wearing gym shorts and hoodies as he goes about his duties, voting from the doorways so he doesn’t get in trouble for his more casual attire. Not all Republicans were upset about the change. Missouri Senator Josh Hawley was wearing jeans, boots and no tie yesterday evening, an outfit he says he normally wears when he flies in from his home state for the first votes of the week.
