Short Description

As the upper chamber of the United States Congress, the Senate has a long and storied history. Its members serve for six-year terms and are responsible for confirming presidential appointments, ratifying treaties, and other high-profile assignments. The Senate also reviews legislation sent up by the House of Representatives. George Washington described the Senate as a “cooling saucer” where pending legislation could “cool” before being turned into law. This book takes you inside the U.S. Senate, from its inception in the early days of the American republic through the present. Follow along on the daily schedule of a senator and learn how senators introduce and pass legislation. Learn about key figures in the history of the Senate, such as the first female and African-American senators. Get in-depth information on the role of Senate staff, constituent services, and the ways the House and Senate collaborate in matters such as impeachment. Whether you’re a political newbie or have studied the Senate before, this book is a great introduction to America’s legislature.
