Welcome Back, Congress!
Wednesday, January 7th, 2009
The 111th Congress was sworn in yesterday in Washington, D.C. (with two exceptions) and it sounds like folks are already getting back to work. Stay tuned here for all things election reform, including the latest on the push for Weekend Voting by U.S. Representative Steve Israel, the only member of Congress to become a Why Tuesday? correspondent, and Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin. Sounds like they’ll be back at it again in 2009.
For some background, read Rep. Israel’s and Why Tuesday? Board Member Norman Ornstein’s New York Times op-ed in support of Weekend Voting.
