Letter: The US Capitol is not a dormitory
Do city or county commissioners sleep in their meeting rooms because they want to save money and not rent a place to live? Do our state legislators sleep in the halls of the Capitol in Bismarck while away from their home cities on legislative business? Most would say of course not....
