What are the steps in the amendment process?
first you need 2/3 proposal of both houses of congress (house of representatives and senate) Then you need a passage or ratification of 3/4 of state legislatures. Close. The amendment process has two steps, proposal and ratification. Official proposals can be made by 2/3 of Congress or 2/3 of state legislatures (so Congress can be involved). Ratification occurs with a 3/4 vote of the state legislatures or a 3/4 vote of state conventions made up of delegates (not necessarily legislators) elected by the people.

Which House has law making powers?
Actually, both houses of congress need to work together, or nothing gets passed. The House of Representatives and the Senate are the two parts of the Legislative branch of the government. They need to cooperate, since a law cannot pass one and not the other. Once both the House and the Senate have agreed, the law is sent on to the president.

What does the Senate of Canada do?
The Senate of Canada reviews bills passed by the elected House of Commons. Members of the Senate are appointed by the Governor General of Canada on the advice of the prime minister, and serve through the age of 75. The powers of the Senate are equal to those of the House of Commons, with two exceptions: (a) the Senate cannot propose money bills, or make amendments to money bills that would need a renewal of the bill's Royal Recommendation; and (b) for some types of constitutional amendments, the Senate is restricted to a suspensive veto of one hundred eighty days. The Senate can approve, reject, or amend any bill brought before it (the Senate can even reject money bills, or entire budgets passed by the House of Commons). The Government of Canada is only accountable to the House of Commons; though a money bill defeat or motion of censure passed by the Senate would be an embarassment, it would need force the resignation of the Government or a general election.
Asked in Political Office Holders
What do Canadian Senators do?
Senators review bills passed by the elected House of Commons. The powers of the Senate and the House of Commons are equal, with two exceptions: (a) the Senate may not propose money bills that would need a Royal Recommendation, or amend a money bill in such a way that would cause it to need a new Royal Recommendation; and (b) the Senate may not suspend some types of constitutional amendments for more than one hundred eighty days. In most circumstances, the Senate bows to the democratic weight of the House of Commons when disagreements between the two Houses arise. However, the Senate is nonetheless empowered to defeat bills (even budget implementation bills) passed by the House of Commons, or to insist upon amendments that the Senate favours. If the Senate and House of Commons cannot agree on a bill, it cannot be presented for royal assent to become law.

Can congress change the number of senators per state to three?
To be able to change the law for three senators to be elected instead of two, an amendment to the constitution would have to be passed. This can be done by Either (a) congress would need a 2/3 majority in the House of Representatives and a 2/3 majority in the Senate, and a 3/4 majority of the states or the states' conventions of legislatures or (b) 2/3 state legislatures could call for a convention to propose an amendment that would need a 3/4 majority of the states or the state's conventions of legislatures. In a nut shell, there are 4 ways to make an amendment: Proposal by convention of states, ratification by state conventions (never used) Proposal by convention of states, ratification by state legislatures (never used) Proposal by Congress, ratification by state conventions (used once) Proposal by Congress, ratification by state legislatures (used all other times)
