First Nail Ceremony

Members of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies and others gathered on the West Lawn of the Capitol  for the First Nail Ceremony.  Members of the Committee gathered to hammer the first nails into what will soon become the 2013 Presidential Inaugural platform.

"The event was only the second public meeting of the committee since it convened in March. The members are, as tradition dictates, culled from House and Senate leadership, with Senate Rules and Administration Chairman Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) at the helm.

The other members of the committee are: Senate Rules and Administration ranking member Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)."
