House Republican freshmen to meet again in Baltimore

January 25, 1996|By SUN NATIONAL STAFF

WASHINGTON -- House Republican freshmen, who met in Baltimore a year ago to prepare for their tumultuous first session as the driving force in the Republican-led Congress, are headed back to the city today for a mid-term refresher.

This year's Republican retreat at the Lord Baltimore Hotel will be much shorter than the three-day session in December 1994. Thanks to the prolonged budget negotiations and an eagerness to return to the campaign trial, the lawmakers will be in Baltimore for less than 24 hours -- from this evening until tomorrow afternoon.

Nearly 60 House members are expected to attend -- about 40 of them freshmen and the rest second-termers.

The meeting, sponsored jointly by the Heritage Foundation and Empower America, which are Republican think tanks, will include panel discussions and caucuses intended to develop an agenda for the year ahead.
