Cynthia Fry Instructor: Dr. Searl-Chapin Political Science 101 1 November 2018 Writing Assignment Three Senate The President of the Senate is the vice president who serves as the president of the Senate. If there is a tie, he or she may be the deciding vote. The Senate President Pro Tempore performs tasks during the vice president’s absences from the Senate. The President Pro Tempore is elected by the Senate because he or she she is the senator of the majority party with the longest record of continuous service. The Majority and Minority Party Leaders are elected by their party to serve as the chief Senate spokesmen for their parties. They also manage and schedule the legislative and executive business of the Senate. The Majority and Minority Whips are the assistants to the party leaders who are elected by their party conferences. They are responsible for mobilizing the votes within their parties on major issues. When a party leader is absent, the whip acts as the floor leader. The two Senators in California are Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein. 1. Kamala Harris serves on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, the Select Committee on Intelligence, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and the Committee on the Budget.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
