New Congress, same issues early on
WASHINGTON (1/8/13)--After last week's swearing in ceremonies, members of the 113th U.S. Congress are preparing to take up many of the same tense issues faced by the last session.

Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan said the mood on Capitol Hill during last week's swearing-in ceremonies seemed upbeat despite looming fights over such things as the country's debt ceiling and tax laws.

For now, Congress is out of session.  But federal lawmakers are scheduled to return before the inauguration of President Barack Obama on Jan. 21.

After that, Congress will hold organizational meetings for its myriad committees. The first regular meetings of those committees will likely take place in early February.
