Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., wants Congress to work a full, 40-hour work week like many other people do, instead of letting Congress work three or four days a week.
In September, Jolly wrote a letter asking the House Rules Committee to make the change to a 40-hour workweek, and said that move would show voters that Congress is committed to working on issues like debt reduction, national security and border enforcement. He also said sessions should start at 8 a.m. and end at 6 p.m.
“Simply put, a work week is a work week,” he wrote. “Our efforts should reflect those of every other working American.”
