Washington, D.C. -- The Washington, D.C., office and the district office of former Representative Xavier Becerra will continue to serve the people of the Thirty-Fourth Congressional District of California under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. Representative Becerra resigned from Congress effective January 24, 2017, ahead of being sworn in as California's Attorney General.
Staff members of Representative Becerra remain on the House payroll under the supervision of the Clerk of the House to receive and undertake constituent casework, to help in handling business with the departments of the executive branch of the government, to provide general status information on pending legislation, and to offer other general constituent services provided by House offices. The Clerk of the House is Karen L. Haas.
