The 118th Congress is hopefully being sworn in this week with a diverse group of legislators. The first Gen Z representative, 25-year-old Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-Fla.), will be sworn in. All eyes are on the Speaker of the House vote to see whether Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has the votes to become the next speaker. This is the first time in a century the speaker vote went beyond a first ballot.
California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin are back in session. This year, 17 states have Democratic “trifectas,” where they control legislative chambers and the governor’s office, and 22 states have Republican trifectas.
