WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley is encouraging Iowans interested in attending the outdoor simulcast of Pope Francis’ address to Congress on Thursday, Sept. 24, to contact his office for tickets. Grassley will receive 200 tickets for the simulcast on the West Front grounds of the U.S. Capitol.

“It’s an historic event, and my wife Barbara and I will attend,” Grassley said. “I encourage any Iowans who’d like to make the trip to contact my office for tickets.”

Grassley said that if the number of tickets requested by Iowans exceeds 200, the tickets will be distributed by lottery. Iowans interested in tickets should contact Grassley’s office at 202/224-3744.

The Pope will speak to Congress inside the Capitol in the House of Representatives’ chamber. He will be the first Pope ever to address a joint meeting of Congress.
