Washington: Hanabusa participates in new member orientation

WASHINGTON, D.C. (HawaiiNewsNow) - Congress went back to work Monday, including Hawaii's newest Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa.

It's like the first day of a new school year, complete with yearbook photos.

The newly-elected House and Senate members gathered for orientation in Washington.

As the new members of Congress learn their way around, the outgoing Congress begins its last session.

One of the final things the lame-duck Congress will decide is whether to extend the Bush tax cuts, which are set to expire at the end of this year.
