Senators, Representatives sworn in on Jan. 3

WASHINGTON D.C. (KFVS) - U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) was sworn in as a Member of the United States House of Representatives for the 116th Congress on Thursday, Jan. 3.

“It’s moments like this when I have to pinch myself and say, ‘Wow, I’m just a kid from Murphysboro,’” said Bost. “It’s the honor of a lifetime serving as the representative for my fellow Southern Illinoisans. Moving forward, I’m going to seek common ground with anyone - Republican or Democrat - without compromising my Southern Illinois values. I’ll continue working in a bipartisan way to fight for working families, our veterans, our farmers, our steelworkers, and all residents of Southern Illinois. This is my home and I will always fight for it. Always.”
