When Alexander Hamilton was describing the U.S. House of Representatives, he put it simply: “Here, sir, the people govern.” And he’s right.
For more than 200 years, this building has served as the center of our representative government. It tells the story of the American people. From the Arctic Circle to Miami Beach and everywhere in between, it is here, in the People’s House, where everyday Americans are reflected in the people they choose to represent them.

We have moms and dads, veterans, small business owners, teachers, and sports fanatics — real people, elected to serve.
The American people called on us to do the big things, and we’re still hard at work. But while we debated the major issues of 2017, we made sure to celebrate life’s special moments.
So, as we close out this year and prepare to ring in the new, I wanted to share with you a special look back on some of our favorite memories from 2017.
Happy New Year!
