Bachus sworn in for 9th term in U.S. House

WASHINGTON, D.C., (WSFA) --  Congressman Spencer Bachus today was sworn in to serve his 9th term representing the 6th District of Alabama. Bachus took the oath of office on the floor of the House of Representatives during the opening day of the 111th Congress.

Bachus, the senior member of Alabama's House delegation, also hosted a bipartisan reception for the state's congressional delegation and their staffers.

"It is an honor to again serve as the representative for the 6th District in our nation's capital.  My continuing commitment is to work hard for the people in the seven counties I represent and uphold their principles. During these challenging times, we must all work together to do what is right for our country. The Alabama delegation has a history of coming together, especially on issues important to our state, and as the senior member of the delegation it is my belief that tradition will continue," Bachus said.

Bachus has been unanimously reappointed to continue in his position as Ranking Member on the Financial Services Committee. It will be his second term leading Republicans on the panel, which is considered one of the most important committees in the House.
