114th Congress Starts

Congress starts on January 6, 2015, instead of January 3, 2015, the date set by the US Constitution, as the 20th Amendment provides:  “The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3d day of January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.”  Of course, since January 3 falls on a Saturday, Congress wouldn’t want to start then!
