Washington
After inauguration, House, Senate are back in session
WASHINGTON (1/23/12)--With Monday's inauguration activities now in the rearview mirror, members of the U.S. Congress will return to work this week.

The Senate this week is considering rule changes for the 113th Congress. Filibuster reform will be on the agenda and a Superstorm Sandy relief measure could also be considered. Committee elections will be held before Senate committees can officially organize.

The House is scheduled to consider legislation that would extend the debt limit for three months, and will also consider bills under suspension of the rules. The House Financial Services Committee will also hold its organizational meeting on Wednesday.

While House members are set to return to their districts on Thursday and Friday and stay there next week, the Senate is scheduled to remain in session at that time.
