Summary

The 110th Congress began with its traditional swearing in and performing many of the ceremonial and pedestrian activities associated with both a new Congress, and the change in control of both chambers to the Democrats. This was most pronounced in the House where Nancy Pelosi was elected as the first female Speaker of the House in the nation's history.

As the session opened in January 2007, the Democratic Leadership quickly undertook it's promised 100-Hour Plan, and began a rapid fire passage of ethics reforms and re-instating the PAYGO rules, pass and implementing the 9/11 Commissions recommendations, increasing the federal minimum wage to make it more fair, passing legislation easing Federal restrictions on Stem Cell research, fix Medicare Prescription Drug Benefits by giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices, cutting federal Student Loan interest rates, rolling back subsidies to "Big Oil", and guaranteeing to fight privatization of Social Security. The Congress also undertook debate surrounding George W. Bush's proposed Iraq troop escalation of 2007.

By January 18, 2007, 87 business hours after the swearing-in, the House had passed all the measures of the 100-Hour Plan. though the legislation still has to pass the Senate and receive the President's signature (or override his veto) to become law.

Weekly Articles

Composition

The Democrats control a majority in both chambers for the first time since the 103rd Congress in 1993 – 1995. Notably, no Democratic-held seats fell to the Republicans in the elections to the 110th Congress. Democrat Nancy Pelosi became the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House. Keith Ellison became the first Muslim in Congress; Mazie Hirono and Hank Johnson are the first Buddhists.

See the current membership of Congress for a full details of the current membership status of the 110th Congress.
