House Calendar

The 2014 calendar for the U.S. House of Representatives is now available.

This calendar helps ensure that elected officials never lose touch with their constituents while completing their work in Washington. It also allows for time back in the district for meetings with working families, seniors, veterans, and other local communities. This is why we will continue to provide Members with one full constituent work week in their districts each month.
