It was the New Jersey Plan that proposed the idea of an unicameral legislature with equal representation. It was ultimately rejected.
The states were given equil amounts of representation, regardless of the population. That would mean the representation would be based on the individual states, and not the population.the New Jersey plan had 3 branches (legislatiure, Execultive, judiceal)the legislature is a unicameral(one house)it was proposed by William Pattersonthis plan was liked by the small population but rejected by the large population states
Yes. Oklahoma does have a unicameral legislature.
A legislature is unicameral if it consists of only one house
There is absolutely no issue with having a unicameral legislature. Many countries do just fine with a unicameral legislature (Sweden, South Korea, Portugal) or have a bicameral legislature where the upper chamber does practically nothing making a de facto unicameral legislature (Spain and United Kingdom).The argument for having a bicameral legislature in a place like the United States is to balance state and national interests, by giving states equal representation in one body and nationally-allocated representation based on population in other body. It also provides for the legislature to self-check. In many countries, the executive is more powerful, serving the purpose of the self-check, or there are no internal divisions that have unique legislative rights, so balancing national and state divisions is unimportant.
A unicameral legislature is a type of government that only has one house or chamber. The state of Nebraska is the only state that has a unicameral legislature.
No, most US states have a bicameral legislature, with two legislative bodies/chambers. A unicameral legislature has a single body/chamber. Nebraska switched to a unicameral legislature in 1934 and is the only US state to currently have a unicameral legislature.

The Congress under the Virginia plan would have been a unicameral legislature with representation based on a state's population like the House of Representatives that we have today.
unicameral A one house legislature is a unicameral. A two house legislature is a bicameral.
A bicameral legislature, which the US uses, consists of two houses in Congress (the Senate and the House of Representatives). It allows for all classes to be represented and essentially creates "fairness" for states, regardless of the size. Unicameral legislatures are common in Communist states. They do not allow for equal representation of the lower classes. It consists of one chamber, or house.

A one house legislature is called a unicameral legislature. The State of Nebraska is currently the only state that has such a legislature. Guam and the Virgin Islands also have unicameral legislatures.
Yes. It solved a dispute among the states to make it so. Small states (according to population) worried about not having any say if the legislature were unicameral with representation only based on population. The large states (according to population) thought by right of majority rule they should have more say. Thus the creation of the house of reps where representation is based on a state's population and the senate where each state gets two senators no matter the size of the state.
