Pelosi plans aggressive first 100 hours
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Eager to set the House agenda after 12 years of GOP control, incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, vows to tackle a variety of issues in the 110th Congress' first 100 legislative hours.

After members are sworn in Thursday, Congress will immediately take up House lobbying and ethics reform, according to Pelosi's office.

Next week, the California Democrat's office said Congress will consider the 9/11 Commission recommendations, an increase in the minimum wage, lifting federal limits on stem cell research, and a Medicare/prescription drug plan.

The following week, Pelosi plans to focus on cutting student loan rates and eliminating subsidies for oil companies.
