Back in Action
The new Congress (the 111th) starts off with a bang on January 6 with swearing-in ceremonies, Electoral College vote counting on Jan 8, and a very ambitious agenda before the Inauguration. While Minnesota, New York and Illinois sort out their empty-Senate-seat dilemmas, the new Congress will be moving quickly on confirmation hearings, a growing stimulus package, and FY 09 appropriations. Whew! For more 411 on the 111, go here (Yep, that’s Wikipedia--- amazingly accurate and up to date).
