3:12:12 A.M. DECORUM IN THE HOUSE CHAMBER - As the Chair has announced previously in the 114th Congress, the Speaker's policy announced on January 6, 2009, with respect to use of the Chamber will continue in the current Congress. The Chair would call particular attention to the aspect of this policy regarding use of certain devices. Because outside "coverage" of the chamber is limited to floor proceedings and is allowed only by accredited journalists, when the chamber is on static display no audio and video recording or transmitting devices are allowed. The long custom of disallowing even still photography in the chamber is based at least in part on the notion that an image having this setting as its backdrop might be taken to carry the imprimatur of the House.
3:13:49 A.M. The Speaker announced that the House do now adjourn pursuant to section 3(b) H. Res. 797. The next meeting is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on June 24, 2016.
