Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that the gentleman from Nevada, the Honorable Mark Amodei, be permitted to take the oath of office today.

His certificate of election has not arrived, but there is no contest and no question has been raised with regard to his election.

Is there objection to the request of the gentlewoman from Nevada?

There was no objection.

Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that the gentleman from New York, the Honorable Bob Turner, be permitted to take the oath of office today.

His certificate of election has not arrived, but I am not aware of any reason why the House should not see him sworn today.

Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from New York?

There was no objection.

Will the Representatives-elect and the members of their respective delegations present themselves in the well.

The Representatives-elect will please raise their right hands.

TURNER appeared at the bar of the House and took the oath of office, as follows:

Do you solemnly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter, so help you God.

Congratulations, you are now Members of the 112th Congress.
