Prior to the adoption of the Twentieth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, effective October 15, 1933, the terms of Representatives and Senators began on March 4, in conformance with a resolution of the Continental Congress implementing the Constitution (adopted September 13, 1788). The Twentieth Amendment provides inter alia that the terms of Representatives and Senators shall commence at noon on January 3, in the year following their election. The first Congress affected by the Twentieth Amendment was the 74th (1935-1937). Since 1934, the first session of a Congress convenes on January 3 of odd-numbered years and adjourned on January 3 the following odd-numbered year. For ease of use, this table lists the closing date of each Congress as an even-numbered year. For more information, see http://www.senate.gov/reference/Sessions/sessionDates.htm.
