The Legislative Branch

How It Works

The Legislative branch is composed of delegates to the House of Representatives and the Senate. The membership of the House of Representatives is determined by college student population, therefore larger schools are allowed to bring more delegates as they represent more students. The Senate levels the playing field: each school is allowed to bring 3 delegates and 3 alternates.

All of the legislation that is discussed in the legislature is written by the delegates of the organization, which allows the legislative branch to really provide an immersive experience in the legislative process. Bills are put through the full legislative process, going through committees, being heard on the floor of both houses of the legislature, and on to the Governor’s desk for final approval or veto.
