New Jersey Plan
This plan was proposed by William Paterson
It called for unicameral legislate
This means that each state, no matter the size, would only have one vote.
This plan was actually proposed June 15, 1787, in opposition to the Virginia plan proposed by Edmund Randolph.
This plan was proposed by Governor Edmund Randolph, but it was drafted by James Madison.
Madison gave the plan to Randolph because he knew the governor would be taken more seriously.
It called for a bicameral legislature
With this plan each state would be represented according to there number of free citizens.
The Great Comprise
The Great Compromise provided the House of Representatives,from the Virginia plan, and the Senate, from the New Jersey plan. This satisfied everyone's needs and gave a new government that properly and fairly represented each state.
