The rule includes a suit, tie and pants for men.

“While we have never had an official dress code, the events of the past week have made us all feel that formalizing a code is the right way forward,” Schumer said.

“I deeply appreciate Senator Fetterman for working with me to reach an agreement that we all find acceptable, and, of course, I appreciate the leadership of Senator Manchin and Senator Romney on this issue.”

Before the measure passed, Fetterman told Manu Raju of CNN who would wear formal attire when presiding over the Senate plenary.

After the vote, Fetterman’s office released a brief statement that included a viral photograph of actor Kevin James.
