The 110th Congress Convenes on Thursday

The 110th Congress will convene this Thursday, January 4, 2007, when the House and Senate hold swearing-in ceremonies for newly elected Members of Congress. On Thursday, the House will also hold a vote to formally elect Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as Speaker of the House, and the remainder of the week will focus on tying up organization matters, such as finalizing committee and subcommittee membership.

Legislative activity will begin in earnest either Friday or early next week, when Democratic members of the House are expected to plunge into their "first 100 hours" legislative agenda. Although immigration reform will not be a part of this early legislative push in the House, we expect the Senate to begin consideration of a comprehensive immigration reform bill sometime in January or February.
