House Calendar

The 2016 calendar for the U.S. House of Representatives is now available.

This calendar ensures that “the People’s House” always remains in-touch with those back home. District work weeks provide an invaluable opportunity for Members to meet with and listen to constituents: working families, seniors, and veterans. Discussing ideas and concerns is a critical function of a responsive, representative democracy, and for this reason, our schedule will continue to provide Members considerable time for constituent services in their districts each month.
