2 The Unites States (U.S.) Congress is the bicameral legislature of the country’s federal government. The Congress is consisted of two chambers: The House of Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representative’s members serve a two-year term representing the people of their district. Representatives introduce bills and resolutions, offer amendments and serve on committees. The number of representatives is based off of the state’s population. Unlike the representatives, each state is appointed two senators, no matter the population of the state. Senators serve a six-year term instead of two. The Senator’s roles include writing and passing laws, approving many presidential appointments, and ratifying treaties with other countries. The United States Constitution gives the congress the rules to what they are they are allowed to do.
