(Harrisburg) -- The state House of Representatives is back to full strength now that the two newest members have taken their oath of office.

Reps. Kevin Schreiber, a longtime economic development administrator in York City, and Daniel Miller, a lawyer from Allegheny County, were sworn in at the outset of today's House session while family and friends looked on.

Both men are Democrats, restoring the partisan lineup to 111 Republicans and 92 Democrats.

They succeed Eugene DePasquale, who was elected state auditor general in last fall's election, and Matt Smith, who was elected to the state Senate.
