Telephone lines were open for comments on the news of the day.
September 17 is Constitution Day, the day when the U.S. Constitutional Convention adopted the Constitution. A federal law established in 2004 requires all schools receiving federal funding to teach about the Constitution on September 17th.

At the end of the program, live scenes were shown from the U.S. House of Representatives before the start of the session. close
