Senate has wasted no time in getting down to business and has already had its first meeting. They have appointed each senator to a committee, such as the Senate Rules Committee, the Social Committee and the Appropriations Committee just to name a few. They reviewed the ins and outs of being a senator like being punctual, using Facebook as a communication tool and set the standard by going over some of the Senate’s past accomplishments.
