NASHVILLE — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander has another title: tour guide.
Boy Scout Troop 911 of Mount Juliet, Tenn., went to Washington with a week of events planned, only to find that many places they intended to go were closed because of the government shutdown.
One place that was open was the weekly Tennessee Tuesday constituent breakfast Tennessee Sens. Alexander and Bob Corker hold. And since tours of the U.S. Capitol building were not available, Alexander offered to provide one.
He took the Scouts to the reception room outside the floor of the U.S. Senate, as well as the rotunda inside the Capitol dome that features historic paintings of U.S. history and the founding fathers.
