Abstract

The legislative branch creates laws that establish policies and programs. The legislative authority of the State is vested in a General Assembly consisting of a fifty member Senate and a one hundred member House of Representatives. The General Assembly meets annually commencing on the second Monday in January. Each House sits upon its own adjournments; keeps a journal of its proceedings; publishes the same; determines its rules of proceedings, punishes members for disorderly behavior; and, with two thirds consent of its members, can expel a member. It has all powers necessary for a branch of the General Assembly of a free and independent state.
