(Harrisburg)  -- Three new members have taken the oath of office as members of the state House.

The three freshmen sworn in on Tuesday were elected during special elections last month in Philadelphia and Westmoreland County. 

Joining the House are Democratic Representatives Tonyelle Cook-Artis and Lynwood Savage from Philadelphia and Republican Representative Eric Nelson from Westmoreland. 

The House remains firmly in Republican hands, 119 to 84. 

A special election in the Senate is planned in Delaware County during the April 26 primary to fill the seat held most recently by Republican Dominic Pileggi, now a county judge.
