As per the Constitution, the U.S. House of Representatives makes and passes federal laws. The House is one of Congress’s two chambers (the other is the U.S. Senate), and part of the federal government’s legislative branch. Duties include introducing, debating, and voting on bills, proposing amendments to bills, and serving on committees. The House also has exclusive powers to initiate all tax and spending bills, as well as to impeach federal officials.
The number of voting representatives in the House is fixed by law at no more than 435, proportionally representing the population of the 50 states. To learn more about the job duties associated with the house of representatives, click here.
