The Articles of Confederation were composed and ratified by the Continental Congress to serve as the first constitution for the United States of America. In the Articles, there was no chief executive. All power described in the Articles was given to the individual states and their representatives in Congress.
There is no limit to the number of terms a member of Congress may serve. As of December 13, 2013, Representative John Dingell of Michigan had the longest service of any member of Congress, 58 years, having been elected 29 consecutive times.
yes, that is correct - 6 years as a Congressman and 8 years as senator,
The three members of the Legislative branch that directly represent you in Congress are your two Senators and your Representative. Every state has two Senators, and each Senator serves the entire state. The number of Representatives for each state varies based on population, with each district electing a Representative to serve in Congress.
He served as a representative from 2012 to 2014.
The Congress is made of 2 "houses" The House of Representatives and the Senate. You averagely have to be 25 for House of Representative members and 30 for Senate members and that's for mostly all the states!
A representative must be twentyfive years old and an USA citizen and he/she must serve for two years.
