Senators to be briefed on personal safety Tuesday

Members of the Senate are scheduled to be briefed on lawmakers’ personal safety Tuesday following last week’s shooting at a congressional baseball practice that nearly killed House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

The briefing is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Capitol, and will be led by Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Frank Larkin and Matthew Verderosa, the chief of Capitol Police.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) requested the briefing on behalf of their members.

House lawmakers got a similar briefing last week.
