United States. Congress. Senate
The United States Senate (1787- ) forms one-half of the United States of America's bicameral legislature, or Congress, and is located in Washington D.C.
The United States Senate was established on July 16, 1787, by the framers of the Constitution. It originally convened in 1789 in New York City and for the next ten years was located in Philadelphia before moving to Washington D.C. in 1800. The Senate's membership includes two senators representing each state and speaking for the needs of their constituencies. The Senate has the power to conduct impeachment trials, review and approve or reject presidential appointees to executive and judical branches, amend or approve treaties (by a two-thirds vote), filibuster legislation, and conduct investigations in the executive branch and outside American society. The leadership of the Senate is comprised of political party leaders and minority party leaders, committee leaders and members, and senate-elected officers and officials. The constitutionally mandated offices are vice president and president pro tempore.
