|Who Represents TAA?|
This page is an explanation of who represents TAA legislatively, at the federal and state levels.
Nationally, the governing legislative body for the United States is the U.S. Congress. The U.S. Congress is a "bicameral legislative body," which means that Congress is divided into two separate assemblies: the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. There are 435 voting members of the U.S. House, elected to two-year terms each, and 100 members of the U.S. Senate, elected to six-year terms each. While each state is represented by two Senators, the number of Congressional districts within each state is based on population size.
According to the 2010 US Census, North Carolina ranks 10th in the United States in population with a total population of 9,535,483; in 2013 NC's estimated population rose to 9,848,072. Due to its population, N.C. has 13 Congressional districts.
At the state level, North Carolina's legislative body is known as the General Assembly (NCGA). Like the US Congress, the NCGA consists of two bodies: the NC House of Representatives and the NC Senate, both are elected to two-year terms. There are 120 members elected to the NC House and 50 members elected to the NC Senate.
TAA's jurisdiction covers 11 counties in central the part of the state, which is a fairly significant footprint. That means that besides the two U.S. Senators, TAA members are represented by six U.S. Congressmen/Congresswomen, 15 N.C. Senators and 28 N.C. Representatives.
