We will be visiting DC next week. I requested a tour of Congress through my representatives office and that has been scheduled for months. From reading posts hear and info elsewhere it sounds like I can stop by the office of the rep to get gallery passes. Do I just do that when I am there? Can anyone just stop by the offices? My rep acutally just took a different job with the administration (Tauscher) so that might make things different.
I am just trying to figure out bhow easy it is to do this and what we can expect timing wise. Is there a way we can tell when we could even view a session? Any tips/ insight would be appreciated. We only have 2 full days in DC and I am getting a little overwhelmed with the feeling that I must schedule everything in advance (like Holocaust, Wash Mon, etc) It is just hard to know the timing on things.
Also, if my reps office booked the COngressional tour is it the same one I could have booked myself online. I have seen posts that indicate the tours are speciall VIP tours and I have seen others that indicate they are just the regular tour. Anyone know anything about that?
