Article I of the United States Constitution

Article I of the Constitution establishes the powers of Congress.  Congress consists of two parts: The Senate and House of Representatives.  Their powers combined make up the the Legislative Branch of the United States Government.  The first Article mandates rules and regulations for serving a term in Congress.  Possible representatives must be at least 25 years old, must have lived in the US for seven (7) years, and live in the state they represent.  Senators must be at least 30 years old, must be a citizen for nine years, and live in the state they represent.  Verbatim, Article I states:


"All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives"
 Legislation cannot be enacted without both houses of Congress.  Both are equal, and cannot overpower each other.  Each state has two senators, and elections are held every two years.
