Citizenship Civics Test Prep: Week 17!
As I'm sure you've heard, Inauguration Day was last Friday! We have a new president and a new Congress. Because of this, today's blog post contains questions regarding your representatives in the federal government. I saved these questions for today because the answers have changed post-election.
Keep in mind that all of the following questions could change in the future -- either because the term limit has expired, a representative has died, resigned, or for some other reason. Therefore, before you go for your citizenship hearing, you should double check to make sure exactly who is in office in these positions so you will get these questions correct.
