The 116th Congress officially convened on Thursday with new members being sworn in.
But Congressman Joe Morellle technically joined the House back in November. Morelle was sworn in after winning the 25th district seat that was left vacant following the death of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.
Thursday, Congressman Morelle was back in DC, voting for Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the House.
Now it is time to get to work as we wrap up day 13 of a partial federal government.
