Senate Reception Room
I am in Washington DC with the Credit Unions Government Affairs Conference. Yesterday was our (Iowa) day to visit our 2 U. S. Senators. Senator Grassley was on the floor of the Senate so he asked if we could come over to the Capital (from the Dirksen Office Building) to meet with him. Once there we waited in the Senate Reception Room located in the north wing of the United States Capitol adjacent to the Senate Chamber. The Senate Reception Room was designed in 1853 to function as a meeting place where constituents could meet informally with their senators, the room continues to serve primarily as a public gathering space. I'm sorry we didn't get to spend more time there - I wanted to take at least another 100 photos.
