Washington, D.C. –
The U.S. House Of Representatives will be read the U.S. Constitution tomorrow morning at 10 am. on the house floor, the second time ever in U.S. history.
The reading comes from the recommendation of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.
In a written statement by Goodlatte, he said, “One of the resounding themes I have heard from my constituents is that Congress should adhere to the Constitution and the finite list of powers it grants to the federal government. Our constitutional principles remain timeless and it is fitting that we start the 113th Congress by reading the Constitution aloud on the floor of the House of Representatives”.
The Constitution was the last read in the chamber two years ago when House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Republicans won control of the House of Representatives.
Like last time, it is expected that each member will read part of it on a first come first serve basis.
