The United States Senate is the upper chamber of the United States Congress, which, along with the United States House of Representatives, constitutes the legislature of the United States.
The Senate is composed of senators, each of whom represents a single state in its entirety. Each state, regardless of its population size, is equally represented by two senators who serve staggered terms of six years. There being at present 50 states in the Union, there are currently 100 senators.
The presiding officer of the Senate is the Vice President of the United States, who is president of the Senate.
