Congressman Steve Daines of Montana was sworn in for the 113th US Congress Thursday.

Daines was selected to serve on the House of Representatives Committees on Natural Resources, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Homeland Security.

He was joined in Washington, D.C., by his parent, wife and four children. Daines was part of the en masse swearing in on the House floor, where he was accompanied by his daughter Caroline and son Michael.

The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, administered the individual ceremonial swearing in later in the day. A Daines press release noted that while taking the oath of office, Daines held a bible owned by his grandfather, who lived in Ledger, Montana, during the 1900s.

“I look forward to working for all of Montana and am ready to roll up my sleeves and fight for policies that help Americans get back to work and get our country back on solid fiscal ground,” Daines said.

Daines, a Republican, takes over the sole Montana Representative seat, which had been held by Denny Rehberg, who ran unsuccessfully for the Senate in 2012.
