On Sunday, January 3, the U.S. House of Representatives convened for the beginning of the 117th Congress. Congressman Lou Correa (CA-46) took his oath of office and officially launched his third term as the Representative for California’s 46th Congressional District. Looking forward, Congressman Correa recommitted to protecting the America Dream.
Rep. Lou Correa said, “Today I begin my third term as your representative in Washington. These last four years have been trying for us all, but today I recommit to each of you. Our country faces grave problems that can only be solved through cooperation and working across party lines.
“As we address climate change, comprehensive immigration reform, caring for our veterans, stagnant wages, rising unemployment, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, and healthcare reform let us remember that we are stronger together.
“In the coming years, we have the opportunity to cast aside our differences and find solutions that help all Americans. I will continue to put the needs of my working families first and prioritize solving problems over partisan theatrics. Together we can make a difference.”
