Rep. Janice Hahn (D-Los Angeles) will resign her congressional seat Sunday so that she can be sworn in as the newest member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

Hahn will be sworn in Monday. Hahn's staff said she has already submitted the necessary letter announcing her resignation to House officials.

Congress is expected to leave for the year Dec. 9, but still needs to pass a resolution to continue funding the government.

New members, including Hahn's replacement representing the L.A. area's coastal cities, Nanette Barragán, will be sworn in Jan. 3.

4:22 p.m. Dec. 1: The post has been corrected to reflect that Hahn's resignation takes effect Dec. 4. It was originally published Nov. 29.
