Butterfield wants Pelosi to require masks on the House floor

Rep. G.K. Butterfield has asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi to change the rules of the House floor so that all members and staff on the floor are required to wear a mask.

“Many of my Republican colleagues refuse to wear a mask on the House floor. I disliked that a few weeks ago when I saw it, but now I’m angry,” the North Carolina Democrat told CQ Roll Call in an interview Wednesday morning.

The House returns for legislative sessions next week.
