legislative branch jackie madrigal

The Legislative Branch consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate, which together form the United States Congress. The Constitution grants Congress the sole authority to enact legislation and declare war, the right to confirm or reject many Presidential appointments, and substantial investigative powers.

Two groups are in the legislative branch, First group is house of representatives , Second group is the senate

Making laws is one of the things that representatives and senators do daily, but it is not the only thing. Members of Congress meet with lobbyists, people working for businesses or interest groups that want Congress to pass certain laws.

lobbyists draft legislation, write speeches,make themselfs helpful that memebers of congress rely on them

I believe the legislative branch is the most powerful because making laws is the way we make things safe in a way, without it, everyone would do what they want legal/illegal and that wouldn't be good at all.
