Yarmuth Takes Part in Congressional Sit-In
John Yarmuth is sitting down on the job.
The Third District Democrat is participating in a sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House in an effort to force the Republican majority to skip a week long recess and take up gun control legislation.
Yarmuth says between 50 to 75 democrats are participating in the sit-in that prompted the Speaker Pro Tem to call the chamber out of order.
He says as the minority, this is the only option available to them to force action on the legislation.
Yarmuth says the plans for the sit in started Monday night and wrapped up Tuesday afternoon.
