Rep. Steve Knight (R-Antelope Valley) was officially sworn in today as a member of the 114th Congress. 

This marks Knight’s inaugural term as a US Congressman, after formerly serving in the California State Assembly and State Senate. Rep. Knight is the first person in history from the Antelope Valley to be elected to Congress, and will serve on the prestigious House Committee on Armed Services and House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. 

"I am thrilled to start in my new role as a member of the House of Representatives and to begin serving the people of the 25th Congressional District," said Congressman Knight.

"I am excited to work with Representative Knight this legislative session," said fellow California Representative and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “His knowledge and passion for Defense and Aerospace will make him a valuable asset to the committees he has been assigned to.”

The 114th Congress convened for the first time this morning, and will begin assigning subcommittees in the following weeks.
