House Of Representative Installing First Womens Rest Room Next To House Floor, Look For Gridlock

House Speaker-to-be John Boehner is planning to install the first-ever women’s restroom next to the floor of the House of Representatives.

Boehner’s office says he’ll direct the Architect of the Capitol to convert an office into a ladies’ room just steps away from where lawmakers cast votes and debate legislation. It mirrors the space occupied by a men’s restroom on the other side of the House chamber.

Female members of the House have long complained that while their male colleagues can duck in and out of a men’s room right next to the chamber, their closest available restroom is much further away in the Congressional Women’s Reading Room, across the ornate Statuary Hall filled with sculptures of prominent Americans.

The new restroom will be located in what’s now the office of the House parliamentarian — the official who advises lawmakers on legislative procedure. That office will be relocated.

Boehner said the change was “long overdue.”

 House installing womens restroom, can’t turn out good..Look for gridlock.
