Westerman sworn in to serve 2nd term
WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-District 4, was sworn in Tuesday for his second term in Congress, pledging in a statement to undo President Barack Obama's "executive overreach."
The official swearing in took place in the House chamber, followed by a ceremonial swearing in with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in the Rayburn Room of the U.S. Capitol, a news release said.
"It is a great honor and privilege to serve the hardworking taxpayers of the 4th Congressional District," Westerman said. "As we start the 115th Congress, I will continue the fight to undo President Obama's executive overreach. I will work with President-elect Donald Trump and my colleagues in Congress to restore constitutional authority granted to the legislative branch, to simplify our tax code, and to repeal Obamacare once and for all."
