About the Position Each state elects two Senators who serve six-year terms. The Senate is part of our legislative branch, affecting laws. The legislative branch also regulates interstate and foreign commerce, controls taxing and spending policies, and can declare war. A senator’s day may include meeting with constituents, discussing policy issues in committee meetings, negotiating compromises on bills that are proposed to become laws, and making public appearances to convey their message to the public. Senators protect State’s Rights, conduct impeachment proceedings for high federal officials, and play an important role in treaties and confirmation appointments for positions like ambassadors and court justices.
