Term: 2 years Salary: $48,731A Representative must be a citizen of the United States and a qualified voter in the legislative district served. The House of Representatives (the 'House') is made up of 98 members, two from each legislative district in the state. The House is the lower house of the Washington State Legislature, and is a part of the process of lawmaking on the state level. All of the membership of the House is elected at the General Election held in November of each even-numbered year, with the exception of when vacancies must be filled. During legislative sessions, the Legislature is called upon to: enact or reject legislation affecting public policy in the state; provide for the levy and collection of taxes and other revenue to support state government and assist local government; and appropriate funds for these purposes. The House also has the exclusive power to bring impeachment proceedings. Although laws are enacted only when the Legislature is convened in formal session, policy issues and the general operation of state and local government are under continuous review by legislators serving on permanent and interim study committees.
