The Ninety-second United States Congress was a meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, composed of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in Washington, DCmarker from January 3, 1971 to January 3, 1973, during the last two years of the first administration of U.S. President Richard Nixon.

The apportionment of seats in this House of Representatives was based on the 1960 Census. Both chambers had a Democratic majority.

Major events

Passing legislation on revenue-sharing was a key event of the congress. President Richard Nixon had it listed on his list of top policies to cover for the year. Nixon signed the bill into law at Independence Hall in Philadelphiamarker. the law gained support from many state and local officials including: San Franciscomarker Mayor Joseph Alioto who received $27 million in revenue-sharing money in the first year. Alito said that many projects that would not have been possible could now be done, ""That will effectively enable us to meet those programs which up to now because of very tough budgeting we've had to trench."
