WASHINGTON, D.C., January 2, 2023 – United States Senator-elect Katie Boyd Britt (R-Ala.) will take the oath of office on the Senate floor shortly after the 118th Congress convenes at 12:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 3.
In keeping with traditional protocol, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) as Alabama’s new senior senator will escort Senator-elect Britt to the Vice President, who will administer the oath as the Senate’s presiding officer. Members of Senator-elect Britt’s family will witness the swearing-in from the Senate gallery.
Additionally, hundreds of Alabamians have notified our office that they intend to travel to Washington to celebrate the landmark occasion in-person, and we look forward to welcoming them to our nation’s capital and giving them a tour of Senator-elect Britt’s temporary office space in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
Alabamians can watch the swearing-in live on C-SPAN 2 via television or their online livestream. Alternatively, the Senate’s own livestream can be accessed online here.
“Taking the oath of office is incredibly humbling,” said U.S. Senator-elect Katie Britt. “As people across America approach this time of year with a sense of renewal and optimism while undertaking New Year’s resolutions, I want Alabamians to hear this commitment directly from me: I am firmly resolved to never be outworked and to always make Alabama proud in the United States Senate. Being entrusted to serve as Alabama’s U.S. Senator is a tremendous honor and responsibility. I am ready to hit the ground running to fight for hardworking families in every corner of our great state and to preserve the American Dream for generations to come.”
