Arizona House of Representatives

The Arizona House of Representatives is the lower house of the Arizona Legislature, the state legislature of the U.S. state of Arizona. The upper house is the Senate. Its members are elected to two-year terms with a term limit of four consecutive terms (eight years). Members of the Republican Party currently hold a majority in the House.

Each of the state's 30 legislative districts elects two representatives. Multi-member districts are also used in the Washington, North Dakota and Idaho House of Representatives, as well as the New Jersey General Assembly, and are less common than the single-member districts used by most state legislatures.

Each representative represents a district of at least 172,000 people. The House convenes in the legislative chambers at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix.

Leadership of the House[edit]

The Speaker is elected by the majority party caucus along with the Minority Leader, the Assistant Minority Leader, and the Minority Whip. The House as a whole shall pass a House resolution confirming the Speaker and the Chief Clerk of the House.[1] In addition to presiding over the body, the Speaker is also the chief leadership position, and controls the flow of legislation and committee assignments. Outside of legislative authority, the Speaker is given the power to employ, terminate and alter the compensation of all House employees.[2] The Speaker has full final authority of all expenses charged to the House of Representatives, further, the Speaker the individual responsible for approving House expense accounts. The minority party selects a Minority Leader, an Assistant Minority Leader and a Minority Whip in a closed caucus.
