CALIFORNIA STATE LEGISLATURE (73005)
There are two houses of the California State Legislature. One house is the State Assembly, the other is the State Senate.
Like the U.S. House of Representatives, the State Assembly is called the “lower house” since its members serve a lower number of years than the members of the “upper house.”
Like the U.S. Senate, the California State Senate is called the “upper house.”
There are 80 Assembly members in the State Legislature. They are referred to as Assemblyperson, Assemblyman, or Assemblywoman. Each elected Assemblyperson serves a term of 2 years. The area that an Assemblyperson serves is called an Assembly District (AD).
There are 40 State Senators in the State Legislature. Each elected State Senator serves a term of 4 years. The area that a State Senator serves is called a Senate District (SD).
