WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-1) this week advocated against the adjournment of the House of Representatives for the month of August, submitting the following statement for the Congressional Record:

“Mr. Speaker, once again, I am disappointed that Congress plans to adjourn this August without addressing critical issues important to the American people.

“I appreciate that district work periods allow Members to visit and work on behalf of their constituents. I am fortunate to commute from my home in Montross to Washington DC on a daily basis, so I am in my district listening to the concerns of my constituents every day.

“However, too much unfinished business remains, and too many important issues must still be addressed with a limited amount of time on the calendar. Congress has not completed its work, and our constituents expect us to stay and finish the job.

“I am prepared to stay in Washington until we complete the people’s work. As I have asked year after year, let’s clear our schedule, halt the outdated tradition of adjourning for the month of August, and stay in Washington to complete the work our constituents sent us here to do.”

Wittman has also argued against previous August adjournments:

Wittman: Stay in Washington, Get the Job Done (August 2, 2013)

Rob Wittman calls on Congress to stay in DC, finish critical business (August 2, 2012)

Representative Rob Wittman represents the First District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee where he is the Chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee.
