The US Senate is the upper house of the US Congress. Bills must be passed by a majority of both houses of Congress in order to become law. Except for revenue bills, bill can be introduced in either house.

The Senate alone must confirm most appointments of the President, including ambassadors, cabinet members, federal judges and other high-ranking positions.

The Senate must ratify any treaties made with foreign governments .
