112th Congress First Meeting

Amazingly, the first day of the lame duck session for the 111th started out with new bills being introduced, as if they have time to consider most of these. One important piece of legislation that was introduced in the Senate yesterday; Senate Joint Resolution 40, is a joint resolution appointing the day for the convening of the first session of the One Hundred Twelfth Congress.

This resolution would set the day of the first meeting of the 112th Congress as Wednesday, January 5th, with the first regular session for both houses meeting at noon on that day.

The bill was approved by unanimous consent in the Senate and is currently waiting action in the House.
