House Resumes Session; Senate Set For Monday

By Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, September 18 (LINA)  -The House of Representatives Thursday resumed session, while the Senate has slated Monday to start business following the disinfection of the Capitol Building that houses the National Legislature.

Both houses jointly suspended sessions on Tuesday, September 16, to allow the Ebola team disinfect their chambers as a precautionary measure against the virus.

The action was advised after the death of an employee of the Capitol Building from a suspected Ebola-related ailment.

According to the Senate Director of Press, Jarlawah A. Tompo, the Senate shifted the resumption of session to allow more ventilation of the chambers owing to the odor in its chambers by the disinfection on Tuesday.

 “While it is true that the Senate must be in session during these crucial times in our country, the preservation of their lives cannot be overlooked, and is therefore paramount to all of us,” Tompo told reporters at the Capitol Building.

He noted that the Senate will resume work Monday, adding that it is expected that the entire chambers will be ventilated and the odor evaporated by then.
