There are 435 U.S. Representatives in the United States that comprise the House of Representatives, otherwise known as the United States Congress. U.S. Representatives are responsible for drafting and voting on federal laws for the United States. The work of preparing and considering legislation is done by standing congressional committees, and in addition there are special committees as well as joint committees (committees with U.S. Representatives and Senators). Federal funding bills originate in the House of Representative, and the House of Representatives is responsible for carrying out impeachment proceedings. Congressional bills, after having been passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, must be signed by the president of the United States within 10 days of their submission, or they become law automatically, unless Congress is not in session. If vetoed by the president, a bill may become law only by its repassage by a two-thirds majority in each house. The Constitution requires a regular annual meeting of Congress, which begins on Jan. 3 each year. The proceedings of Congress are recorded in the Congressional Record, and U.S. Representatives have offices in Washington D.C. and their home districts to address concerns of citizens in their districts. The yearly salary for a United States Congressional Representative is $174,000.
