Contents

The Sixty-eighth United States Congress was a meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, comprised of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in Washington, DC from March 4, 1923 to March 3, 1925, during the last months of the administration of U.S. President Warren G. Harding, and the two years of the first administration of his successor, U.S. President Calvin Coolidge.

The apportionment of seats in this House of Representatives was based on the Fourteenth Census of the United States in 1920. Both chambers had a Republican majority.
