CASE STUDY United States Congress
Congress is made up of the House of Represen-
tatives and the Senate. Members of the House
of Representatives serve two-year terms and
represent a district in a state. The number of
representatives for each state is determined by
population. States with larger populations have
more representatives than states with smaller
populations. The total number of representatives
is set by law at 435. Members of the Senate
serve six-year terms and represent a state. Each
state has 2 senators, for a total of 100 senators.
