  •  I just called (none)
    Got a scripted response, but the guy who answered was friendly enough.  I told him that, irrespective of the formality or informality of the hearings, it set a bad tone to exclude the minority from using the people's house to discuss the people's business.

    I was told that the hearings had been removed from the Capitol because the minority has "abused" the privilege of using committee rooms for hearings in the past, and that, after repeated warnings, their failure to cease holding unofficial meetings in those chambers left no choice but to ask them to hold the hearings elsewhere.

    The guy was reading a script, so I thanked him and told him I hoped he had a pleasant night and that I hoped the callers would be polite to him.
