FYI Number 14: January 30, 2006

Congressional Calendar for 2006

Congress has announced its tentative schedule for 2006. The session promises to be busy as Members work toward election day on November 7.

Use this calendar to plan meetings with your representative or senators. During weeks that Congress meets in Washington, Members are usually in their offices on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Consider meeting with your Member while he or she is in their district office. Members will likely have more time without competing hearings or floor votes. See for guidance on setting up an appointment and meeting with a Member.
