The 2009 legislative year kicked off this week with Michigan’s two new U.S. Congressmen, Reps. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Hills) and Mark Schauer (D-Battle Creek), being sworn into the 111th Congress on Monday, January 5.
Peters represents the 9th District and Schauer represents the 7th District. At the state level, the spring legislative session will begin January 14.
