Statement by the Radio-Television Correspondents’ Association Executive Committee

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

We as the executive committee members of the RTCA condemn in the strongest possible terms the Senate Rules Committee’s effort to limit press access. Restricting access in public spaces in the U.S. Capitol and Senate office buildings prevents the American public from hearing directly from their lawmakers. We are in discussions with the Senate Rules Committee to address their concerns and look forward to developing a workable solution that does not curtail our First Amendment rights.
