Congressman Tom Latham was in Washington for the first day of the new session Thursday.
This year he is representing a newly formed district in Southwest Iowa thanks to redistricting. Iowa lost one congressional seat, and as a result Latham picked up a few new counties.
He is now opening three new regional offices in Des Moines, Creston and Council Bluffs to serve those new areas.
The offices are still being prepared and will be up and running over the next couple of weeks.
