Good point, Henry.
If nothing else, lawmakers can work from one of their multiple home district offices. This would still be better than working from DC's toxic, non-partisan and arguably corrupt political environment with national/global corporate lobbyists bucking the system via legislative loopholes and big money donations for votes.
The more time spent by Congressmen and women at the grassroots levels -- and away from DC -- the better for citizens and voters everywhere. Too many citizens don't vote because they feel alienated from the political process. Perhaps a greater Congressional presence among the people may change that for the better.
