Congressman Bill Enyart today was officially sworn into the 113th Congress by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives this afternoon, Enyart joined his new colleagues in an en masse oath of office. He will hold a community swearing-in in Belleville later this month.
"I am deeply honored to serve as the voice of Southern Illinois in Washington," Congressman Bill Enyart said. "It is a privilege and tremendous responsibility to take on the challenges our families face. Southern Illinois is blessed with a talented workforce, abundant natural resources, and a powerful sense of community. I have every confidence that by working together we can create a strong economic future for all of our families and protect the Southern Illinois way of life we share."
