Did you know?There are 435 members in the U.S. House of Representatives serving 2-year terms.
There are 100 members in the U.S. Senate serving 6-year terms.
Senate terms are staggered, so every two years, nearly one-third of the Senate is up for reelection.
It is because of this two-year turnover that every two-years is considered a Congress.
Each year of a two-year Congress is considered a session.
We are entering the first session of the 113th U. S. Congress, which will commence on January 3, 2013.
There are 134 members in the Minnesota House of Representatives serving 2-year terms.
There are 67 members in the Minnesota Senate serving 2- or 4-year terms, depending on when they were elected relative to the U.S. census.
They meet between January and the third Monday of May each year.
