    To help combat increased drive times caused by the armada of truckers in the People’s Convoy, House Sergeant at Arms William Walker and House Chief Administrative Officer Catherine Szpindor wrote to Capitol Hill staff on Sunday night urging them to either work from home or use public transportation.

    If that was not an option, the two House officers gave the unusual option of letting staff get a hotel room paid for by their congressional office, which is funded by taxpayer money, so they can stay close to the Capitol and avoid a commute.

    '일반적으로, living expenses and commuting expenses, including lodging expenses at a Member’s or employee’s regular duty station, are not reimbursable with official funds, except in extraordinary circumstances,’ Walker and Szpindor write in a letter obtained by DailyMail.com.

    ‘Considering the current situation, the Committee on House Administration has determined that extraordinary circumstances exist to permit use of official funds to reimburse short-term lodging expenses in the Washington, D.C., area for certain Members and staff,’ 그들은 지적했다.

    To meet the requirement for an office-paid hotel room, staff must show their commute to the Capitol would be disrupted by the convoy, that their job is essential and requires them to be on the four-acre Capitol campus, and there is no feasible public transportation option.

    Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, who was briefed by Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger about the convoys, said Monday she is monitoring both trucker convoys ‘closely to ensure D.C. residents are kept safe.

    ‘As of now, they apparently do not plan to disrupt regular business inside D.C., instead planning to drive several laps around the beltway at 45-55 miles per hour and bus some representatives into the District to meet with members of Congress,’ she wrote in a press release.

    ‘Chief Manger told me that he was more worried last week, before the State of the Union, prior to making contact with the convoys, and he currently does not expect either of the groups to cause security problems in the area.

    Residents of the D.C. metro area have warned of possible traffic jams as the massive 18-wheelers travel the interstate this week.

    In a statement posted to Twitter on Sunday night, the Maryland State Police urged drivers to anticipate ‘higher volumes of trafficas they try to get to work this week.

    ‘While public safety remains a priority and we work to fulfill our statewide law enforcement responsibilities, the Maryland State Police respects the public’s First Amendment rights,’ the police said in the statement.

    그러나, in a bit of irony, the convoy, which wanted to cause traffic jams, ended up getting caught up in Washington notorious traffic itself on Sunday.

    As the trucks made their way onto I-495 Beltway, they moved slowly to try and block the multi-lane highway but their presence got deluded by the mass of vehicles that traverses one of the busiest interstates in the country.

    Most cars were able to move around the trucks, which flew American flags and had signs that read ‘Don’t tread on meand ‘mandate freedom.

    공무원, 하나, were worried things could be worse on Monday when the commuter rush is even bigger.

    ‘It is an unpredictable and fluid event that we are witnessing,’ said Christopher Rodriguez, director of the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. ‘Our residents, commuters and visitors should expect traffic disruptions over the next several days.

    Trucker and People’s Convoy organizer Brian Brase said Sunday the group is coordinating with local law enforcement, while also acknowledging that ‘obviously there’s a natural disturbancecaused by their protest.

    ‘We do not want to impede traffic any more than necessary to get our message across,’ 그는 말했다.

    Brase added: ‘If they don’t come to the table to meet with us or they ignore us, then every day it will escalate.

    The trucker had previously claimed the group would continue to circle the Beltway each day this week, clogging one of the main arteries into DC until the their demands are met. 하나, Sunday he indicated that plans will be determined day-by-day.

    Another organizer has not ruled out the trucks honking their horns along Pennsylvania Avenue, despite the convoy’s promise not to go into the capital city limits.

    ‘I can tell you now that there will be select trucks going to the White House,’ organizer Dan Fitzgerald revealed on his Friday morning livestream. ‘I don’t want people thinking we are invading D.C. This is not the convoy going into D.C. commons. This is a few select drivers.

    Brase echoed the sentiment Sunday morning before the convoy departed for the Beltway for the first time. He said that although they weren’t going into D.C. proper on Sunday ‘it does not mean it won’t happen’ OnlyFans의 CEO이자 설립자인 Tim Stokely에게 '답변'을 요구했습니다..

    ‘We are not going to sit idly by,’ 그는 말했다. ‘We are going to continue to press forward with our mission, but we are also going to do so with some diplomacy to show that we are not unreasonable and willing to talk, but also flex our muscle if you do not hear us.

    The trucker reiterated: ‘We’re doing this to let them know that we are very serious. We’re doing this to let them know we will not give in. We will not bend the knee to them and to remind them that they work for us.

    He also claimed the group will continue to protest ‘peacefullyand ‘with some classas they had done ‘coming all the way across the country.

    하나, the fate of their protest remains unclear as the truckers need to leave the Hagerstown Speedway by 10pm on Monday. Some speculate this could impact the convoy’s ability to stick together for future Beltway loops.

    The American Truckers Freedom Convoy, which has gathered in Virginia, echoed those claims, saying their participants and members have come together from ‘all political spectrums’.

    ‘We’re getting so much testimony and so much information and petition signatures from people across the platform,’ convoy organizer Tom Shadilay told the Free Lance-Star 일요일.

    ‘Democrats, Independents, Republicans who are seeing a lot of problems with the country right now that they want them addressed, and they’re unified in that.

    ‘It’s not about COVID, it’s about everything,’ said Tom Simpson, of Spotsylvania, 여자 이름, who came to the trucker gathering as a supporter. ‘Our economy has tanked in the last year.

    ‘The people are tired of all the crap going on up there in the White House,’ echoed fellow Spotsylvania resident Mervin Todd, alleging policies created by current lawmakers are ‘negatively impacting the quality of life for the average American citizen.

    Dewey Irving, a 36-year-old independent trucker from Virginia, cited rising gas prices as his reasoning for protest. He claims to spend over $2,000 each week to fill his semi.

    ‘This is the highest I’ve ever seen fuel prices and they’re going to go up more, I bet,’ Irving told the newspaper. ‘If they don’t get the fuel prices down, I’m going to have to shut this truck down.

    He also said that despite rising costs, truckers are still earning the same pay: ‘We should be making a whole lot more money than we are, not spending as much as we are.
