Members of Congress are now allowed to get a little more in the holiday spirit. Rep. Candice Miller (R-Mich.), chairwoman of the House Administration Committee, says lawmakers can now use holiday greetings in their messages to constituents.
The congresswoman writes, “While still prohibiting the misuse of official funds, this new commonsense policy allows Members to share their holiday wishes with constituents in otherwise official communications. I feel it is entirely appropriate for members of Congress to include a simple holiday salutation, whether it is Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and so on.”
