Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

After lengthy negotiations during the lame duck session, the 112th Congress approved January 1 legislation (H.R. 8) to avoid the fiscal cliff just prior to adjourning; the president quickly signed the bill into law. The new Congress was sworn in January 3, and the House and Senate will return to Washington later this month.
