Because the the Senate was set up to have only two members per state, and the House was set up to have an arbitrary, fixed but changable number of members, representing each state based on population. Some Founding Fathers feared being dominated by states with large populations, while others feared being dominated by sparsely populated states, so this was a compromise..it gives BOTH groups a voice
the house of represantatives has more members
the house of representatives would be able to spend more time doing legislative work than the senate because there are more members in the house of representatives than in the senate
The US House of Representatives has 435 members and the US Senate has 100, so the House has more people.
By far, the group in Congress that has more members is the U.S House of Representatives. The Senate only has 100 members. The House, however, has 435 voting members.
Members of the Senate have more responsibilities than members of the House, since they are numerically fewer (100 compared to 435).
No, the Senate is the upper chamber and the House of Representatives is the lower chamber.
the house of representatives was based on the population of the state and the senate was 2 representatives per state no matter the population.
the house has more members than senate House has more members than the senate
The House of Representatives has more members because they are awarded to the state based on population. Senate gets two per state no matter what.
Both houses, the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Because the House was designed to be the people's representatives in the Federal Government. It is based on population, where more populous states have increased power. In the US Senate each State has equal representation.
They can’t have more members in the senate because everyone gets 2 members. In the House it is based on population and NY all ready has more members than Rhode Island.
No, the Senate is more powerful.
The House has more members, because the senate only has 100 people in it, the house now has 435.
The House Of Representatives has 435 people in it. The senate has 100 people.
There are a lot more than 3 members of the House of Representatives - there are 435
The state of Florida has a bicameral state legislature with a Senate of no more than 40 members and a House of Representatives of no more than 120 members.
Because the Senate is smaller than the House of Representatives
There are more than five members of the House of Representatives. As of 2014, there are 435 voting members and 6 non-voting members.
in the senate
To keep voting fair. There are 2 parts of Congress. The Senate and the House of Representatives. Each State of the United States of America has 2 elected officials that represent the State in the Senate. Each state is allowed a different number of representatives in the House of Representatives based on the states population. For example: Wisconsin would have 2 Senators and 8 Reps, and California would have 2 Senators but 53 Reps. The House allows larger states to have more voting power than smaller states, but the Senate keeps it in check so the larger states can not completely overpower the smaller states. There are: 100 Members in the Senate 435 plus 6 non-voting members in the House of Representatives.
