The equipment was set to be repaired Friday. Offices are likely to receive backlogged mail Wednesday, and normal delivery will not resume until Thursday, according to a “Dear Colleague” letter issued by House Chief Administrative Officer Jay Eagen.

Case Turns Blue. Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii) became the 37th member of the conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition last week.

Case came to Congress in November to complete the late Rep. Patsy Mink’s term (D-Hawaii). He won a second special election Jan. 4 to fill the full two-year term.

“Representative Ed Case will join the Blue Dogs in continuing to advocate common-sense policies that place a priority on getting our fiscal house in order and paying down the burdensome national debt,” stated Rep. Jim Turner (D-Texas), Blue Dog co-chairman for administration.

Caucus Launch. A handful of House Members launched the Congressional Morocco Caucus last week to promote understanding of issues related to the Northwest African country and to improve U.S.-Moroccan relations in general.

Founding members include Reps. Phil English (R-Pa.), Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), John Tanner (D-Tenn.) and Chris John (D-La.).
