To serve its new purpose as courtroom for the impeachment trial of President Clinton, the Senate chamber has been slightly transformed.

Two large tables have been installed in the well at the front of the chamber, one for the 13 Republican House managers who will serve as prosecutors and one for the White House defense counsels. A small table will also be installed next to the traditional podium for any possible witnesses.

Chief Justice William Rehnquist will take the top seat on the dais normally occupied by the presiding officer of the Senate. He will be joined at the dais by his assistant and a clerk.

As usual, Republican and Democratic senators sit on opposite sides of the main aisle.
