A new session commences on January 3 (or another date, if Congress so chooses) each year. Before the 20 Amendment, Congress met from the first Monday in December to April or May in the first session of their term (the "long session"); and from December to March 4 in the second "short session". (The new Congress would then meet for some days, for the inauguration, swearing in new members, and organization.)<br />Total number of Congress:<br />There are 535 members of Congress: 100 Senators and 435 Representatives.<br />
