House in recess until 9:00 a.m. tomorrow--semi-formal dress required!
One member, concerned about his hotel room situation, asked the Speaker if tomorrow is the last day of the session. The Speaker replied that he hopes so, but it's not definite. Another member only half jokingly asked Speaker Pro Tempore Lois DeBerry whether the members could dress casually. After looking around icily and wondering aloud who asked that, she bluntly stated, "No."
