There will be 435 separate congressional districts in the United States based on equal population. The residents of Washington D.C. will now have representation in the Federal Congress, which they did not have before. Congressional members will be elected based on the system of Proportional Representation. Congressional members must pass bills with at least a 51% majority.

Section 2

All Federal Representatives of the United States Congress will be chosen for four-year periods that coincide with presidential terms of office.

Section 3

Each state will have at least one Federal Representative. The District of Columbia will also have Federal Representation based on its population.

Section 4

When vacancies in the Federal Congress occur because of sickness, death, or resignation, the residents of the pertaining district can vote for a new Federal Legislator.

Section 5

The Federal Representatives shall elect one of their own members to be the Speaker of the House at the start of every new term, based on the Instant Runoff Voting method. The elected Speaker of the House will choose the Chair Persons for the established committees. The Chair Persons, in turn, shall select a diverse group of committee members.

Section 6

The Representatives will be allowed to try, impeach, and remove any

high-leveled federal officer in the legislature, executive, and judicial branches of the federal government. Any officer impeached is also liable and subject to indictment, trial, judgment, and punishment, according to the law.
