Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., conducts a news conference after the senate luncheons in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, June 21, 2023.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has quietly made changes to the Senate's informal dress code to allow senators to wear whatever they want on the floor, one person with direct knowledge told NBC News.
The change would let Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., who is often seen wearing a hoodie and baseball shorts, wear his casual attire on the Senate floor whenever he wants.
Fetterman, who was elected during last year's midterm elections, was seen wearing a suit and tie during his swearing-in in January.
However, the senator has worn his casual clothes after he returned to the Senate following treatment for clinical depression earlier this year.
