About The Legislature from, NJ Kid's

The New Jersey Legislature consists of two Houses a 40 member Senate and an 80 member General Assembly. The Senate and Assembly chambers are located in the State House in Trenton.

The Branches of Government
The government of the United States has two levels, Federal and State.

The US Constitution spells out what the Federal Government can do. It also says the States can do whatever the federal government does not have direct jurisdiction of, although the Federal and the States do share some power.

The legislative branch on the federal level is made of two houses, The Senate and the House of Representatives. Together they are called The Congress.

Each state has two Senators that are elected statewide so they do not have a district.

The Representative, call a Congressman, is elected in a district that is draw up by the House. Each district tries to have about the same amount of people in it and it is done every 10 years after the census.

The legislative branch in most states is made up a two houses called a Senate and a Assembly. (NOTE; Nebraska is the only state with a single, non-partisan senate called the Unicameral).

Both the State Senate and the State Assembly are elected by a district that is drawn up by the respected houses based on census data. from,
I like Newark Mayor Cory Booker. He's done a lot for Newark, considering that all our US cities and towns are so under funded regarding social services.

Entitlements, is what I believe the gop call them. I call them things like, having a fire house nearby and you fire hydrants working.

Or a cop being there when you need one.

A decent, affordable education. At least schools with recent textbooks and extracurricular activities. Decent jobs with real salaries and benefits. Help for families and feeding children, etc.

Now that the government has re-opened don't forget to hurry up and apply for the

The Adopt a Bubbe (or Zayde) program reaches out to elderly Jews and the handicapped in Ukraine and Belarus. ie Ninety-two year old Clavdia Ohinchenko sits at a Warm House table in Zhovty Vody, Ukraine, where she and several friends received a hot meal thanks to Action for Post-Soviet Jewry.
