Business casual is recommended throughout the meeting including the

out and tour Washington, D.C., bring comfortable shoes, shorts and

attire (ties for men), a white lab coat so that Senators and

going from the Capitol to the various House and Senate offices seem to
get longer and longer as the day progresses.
