Grassley: Senate Needs A Longer Work Week To Solve Nation’s Problems

Washington, DC — Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says he’s becoming increasingly agitated by having such a short work week.

Grassley, a Republican, says Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, has strayed far from how it was when Grassley first went to work as a US senator. Grassley says in those days, the week started at 10 a.m. on Monday and ran through 4 p.m. on Friday.

Grassley says the country’s problems can’t be solved if the Senate is only in session two-and-a-half days a week.

Grassley made his comments at a town hall meeting in Atlantic on Tuesday.
