Durbin, No. 2 Senate Democrat, 'concerned' about dress code change Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) says he is “concerned” about a decision to loosen the Senate’s dress code to allow senators to wear whatever they want on the chamber floor, arguing “we need to have standards.”  Durbin, the No. 2-ranking Senate Democrat and chairman of the powerful Judiciary Committee, signaled he’s not ready to let hoodies, blue jeans or shorts become the norm on the Senate floor, which has been the venue of many important historic moments over the years. “Well, I’m concerned about it,” Durbin told “The Briefing with Steve Scully” on SiriusXM’s POTUS channel, when asked about the recent change in the rules of decorum.  Durbin acknowledged that changing the Senate’s dress code would accommodate his colleague, first-term Sen.

Published Wed, 21 Feb 2024 16:11:05 GMT

2023 Fall foliage report: Week 1 Temperatures are cooling down and the nights are getting longer - fall is upon us! The changing leaves are another sign of the season. Some areas in the higher terrain have seen some decent progress over the past week. If you want to celebrate the first weekend of fall with some leaf peeping, you'll need to take a drive to the higher terrain. Spots like Old Forge and Tupper Lake are already reached the color midpoint. Early colors have been spotted all around the Green Mountain State. More pops of color are showing up at Whiteface Mountain and Lake Pleasant. You may have even spotted some patches in the higher spots of the Capital District.So, the color change is on it's way. Peak foliage might be a little delayed this year. The wet summer followed by an extended surge of late-season wet continued the production of chlorophyll, keeping the leaves green. We need cool nights, dry and mild afternoons to move the changing foliage along.Image courtesy of Evan Fisher, Explore FallI stumbl...
