This house's specialty isn't Boston baked beans, it's Boston legislation. The Massachusetts House of Representatives works with its sister organization, the Senate (together called the General Court), to pass legislation based on recommendations from its members, the general public, or the Governor. Its 160 members are elected to two-year terms; they choose the Speaker of the House as their leader. The body works via committees to debate and consider bills. The House of Representatives serves about 6.4 million and has a budget of $33.7 million.
