The Hill Update: 111th Congress Starts Today

Today the 111th Congress will begin at 12 noon with the formal swearing in. From North Carolina Kay Hagan will become our junior Senator and Larry Kissell will become our newest Congressman. WRAL will cover all the pomp live.

Not all the Senate will be seated today as we continue to wait on the Illinois situation and the Minnesota race.

First job up for this Congress? The economic stimulus bill. We will be following this federal initiative closely to see what numbers are reflected in the FMAP increase.
