The basic points of civics D and E
By: Kris

The two Houses
The Houses are the Senate and the House of Representatives.The House is based on population because every ten years the Census takes count and fills in the seats. The Senate couldn't care less because for every state there is always (NO ANDS IFS OR BUTS) 2 Senators. The houses term lasts for two years and works from January to November or December. The Senate works for six years but works in the same sessions as the house.
Non-Legislative Powers
Non-legislative powers are powers that doesn't have to do with law-making but congress controls them. One of these powers is to suggest amendments to the constitution.
SWAG OVERLOAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Expressed powers
Expressed powers are powers directly stated in the constitution such as the freedom of press.
Implied powers
Implied powers are powers are powers not stated in the constitution. They are basically powers like expressed but are not directly stated. If i were to read the constitution and the first freedom was the freedom of speech. I go out in the middle of the night and yell a speech in an intercom. Implied powers help us say we have the right to speak but not at a nonappropriate time.
There are three types of committees. There are standing, select, and joint committees. Standing committees are committees that are permanent and usually deal with government work. Select committees are committees that are temporary and deal with special services. Joint committees are committees that happen when both parties meet to discuss special issues and are temporary. (FUN FACT: if you want "in" on committee services, you need lots of years of service).
Legislative powers
This is the beginning of the civics E where the lesson is all about powers of congress. Legislative powers are powers that have to do with law-making such as the law that says you cannot steal. LEGISLATIVE MADE THAT LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Majority and Minority parties
The Majority and Minority parties are determined
by the amount of people in each party int that session. The party with more is the Majority party and the party with less is the Minority party. Each party has a congressional leader and a presiding officer. Each jobs are chosen by the amount of votes in each party. Each party name there presiding officer too. The Houses is the speaker and the Senate is actually the vice president!
