The U.S. Senate has made changes to its dress code policy, allowing senators to choose their attire.
This decision was communicated by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to the Senate’s Sergeant at Arms.
While senators are exempt from the dress code, others entering the chamber must adhere to it.
This change notably benefits Sen. John Fetterman, known for his casual attire, who had previously found ways to bypass the dress code. Fetterman’s unique style had garnered both praise and criticism.
Despite the change, Schumer stated he would continue wearing suits.
