11 Months Later, Boehner Again Reminds Members to Dress Appropriately

Eleven months to the day after Speaker John A. Boehner reminded members to wear “appropriate business attire” on the House floor, the Ohio Republican was singing a familiar tune on the House floor.

“Members should wear appropriate business attire during all sittings of the House, however brief their appearance on the floor may be. You know who you are,” Boehner said Wednesday, a reminder he has issued in each of the past three years.

One day after Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sported a pair of shades, Boehner’s speech covered member conduct and procedure on the House floor, similar to his 2014 address.
