Greenbrier Lawmaker Retreat Postponed Amid Shutdown

An annual retreat for Republican members of Congress at a West Virginia resort has been postponed due to the government shutdown.

The retreat had been scheduled from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs.

The Congressional Institute said in a statement Wednesday that members of Congress instead should be in Washington, D.C., “negotiating a path that gets our federal workforce back on the job.”

The statement says the conference will be rescheduled for later this year.
