The United States Senate is the upper house of the bicameral American legislature; the lower house, the House of Representatives, is not yet represented in-game. It is comprised of two senators directly elected from each state for terms of 4 years (about 80 hours in-game). Senators are able to propose and vote on bills introduced to the chamber; these bills automatically become law if 50% + 1 of the Senate votes in favor, or if the bill passes the 60% threshold needed to override a filibuster or Presidential veto. Senators also gain an extra 2 power per turn.
