New Members of the 117th Congress Will Be Sworn In Today


What's Happening:

  • Both the House and Senate are convening and the new members of the 117th Congress will officially be sworn in today.

  • New and returning members of the House of Representatives will take the oath of office and the members will vote on a speaker. Nancy Pelosi (D), current Speaker of the House, is expected to maintain her role.

  • Control of the Senate is still up for grabs until the runoff elections, on Tuesday, determine the final two Senate seats for Georgia. If Republicans win at least 1 of the 2 seats, they will maintain control of the Senate. If Democrats win both of the seats, they will be tied 50-50 with the GOP allowing Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris to be the deciding vote and thereby giving Democrats control of the Senate.
