Republican Paul Ryan has been officially elected as the 54th speaker of the House.

He received 236 votes from the full House of Representatives.

Anyone who is about to take their USCIS citizenship test should be aware that the Speaker has changed, and should revise their answer to Paul Ryan.  The previous speaker of the House was John Boehner who announced his retirement as both speaker and from the house in October.

The Android and iOS apps have been updated to reflect this change.  Make sure you have the latest App on your device.
