112th Congress
110th Congress
The One Hundred Eleventh United States Congress was the meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives. It began during the last few weeks of the George W. Bush administration, with the remainder spanning the first two years of the Barack Obama administration. The Congress lasted from January 3, 2009, until January 3, 2011, and it began its first session on January 6, 2009. The apportionment of seats in the House is based on the 2000 U.S. Census. In the November 4, 2008 elections, the Democratic Party increased its majorities in both chambers. A new delegate seat was created for the Northern Mariana Islands.
