Schumer: Yes, tap water will be served at the inauguration

If it’s good enough for Michael Morse, it’s good enough for Chuck Schumer! (Toni L. Sandys - The Washington Post)
Last week, you may recall, D.C. Water beseeched the presidential inauguration’s congressional planners to reconsider their decision to serve bottled water at inaugural events.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), head of the planning committee, has responded, assuring the utility that clean, fresh D.C. tap water will be available “just as it is in the Capitol every day.”

Fizzy Saratoga Spring Water is being offered, he wrote, because “[a]ttendees at prior Inaugural Luncheons have requested sparkling water.”
