WA Lege Day 1: Swearing them in

Sen. Andy Billig takes the oath of office Monday.

OLYMPIA — Each Legislative session begins with the swearing in of newly elected members.

In the House, they do it all at once. In the Senate, each re-elected senator is sworn in, followed by each newly elected senator. 

Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, who presides over the ceremony, called each one forward with a different adjective in front of his or her name, and Supreme Court JusticeCharles Johnson administered the oath.
