General Duties of a Legislature: State legislatures enact laws that apply to their state. In each state, voters are grouped into legislative districts for the state legislature or general assembly. You are assigned to a district for the upper and lowerhouses of your legislature. The upper house is usually called the Senate,and the lower one, the House of Representatives. You choose an official for each house of the state legislature. The terms vary from two to four years.
