House Session Members elected Representative Newt Gingrigh (R-GA) as speaker of the House. New members and administrative officers were also sworn in. The House passed more than 25 new rules for the session. Among the new rules were cutting the number of committee members and staffs by more than one-third, limiting committee chairs to six years, and the House speaker’s service to eight years.
