House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken back an office on the House side of the U.S. Capitol that was previously given to Vice President Mike Pence.

According to NPR, the office on the first floor of the Capitol was given to Pence by former House Speaker Paul Ryan. After Ryan retired at the start of this year and Democrats took control of the chamber, Pelosi opted to reassign the office space.

Pence also has an office on the Senate side of the Capitol, where he serves as president of the Senate, so he rarely used the office Ryan gave to him.

NPR reported Pence's nameplate has been removed from above the door.

"Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress," a House Democratic aide told NPR.

Pence served in the House for 12 years, from 2001-2013, before becoming governor of Indiana. He was in that role until he was sworn in as vice president more than two years ago.
