Each year, the Congress has two sessions unless the president calls a special session of Congress. Every two years, a new meeting of Congress assumes office.

Currently (December 2, 2010) the second session in 2010 of the meeting of the 111th Congress is conducting business.

In January 2011, the first session of the <newly-elected> meeting of the 112th Congress will begin.
