Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior.

Bicameral
A BICAMERAL legislature is one in which the legislators are divided into two separate assemblies , chambers or houses. BICAMERALISM is distinguished from unicameralism , in which all of the members deliberate and vote as a single group, and from some legislatures which have three or more separate assemblies, chambers or houses. As of 2015, somewhat less than half of the world's national legislatures are bicameral. Often, the members of the two chambers are elected or selected using different methods, which vary from country to country. This can often lead to the two chambers having very different compositions of members. Enactment of primary legislation often requires a concurrent majority – the approval of a majority of members in each of the chambers of the legislature. When this is the case, the legislature may be called an example of perfect bicameralism . However, in many Westminster system parliaments, the house to which the executive is responsible can overrule the other house and may be regarded as an example of imperfect bicameralism . Some legislatures lie in between these two positions, with one house only able to overrule the other under certain circumstances

Congress Of The Confederation
The CONGRESS OF THE CONFEDERATION, or the CONFEDERATION CONGRESS, formally referred to as the UNITED STATES IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED, was the governing body of the United States of America that existed from March 1, 1781, to March 4, 1789. A unicameral body with legislative and executive function, it comprised delegates appointed by the legislatures of the several states . Each state delegation had one vote. It was preceded by the Second Continental Congress (1775–1781) and governed under the newly adopted _ Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union _, which were proposed 1776–1777, adopted by the Continental Congress in July 1778 and finally agreed to by a unanimous vote of all thirteen states by 1781, held up by a long dispute over the cession of western territories beyond the Appalachian Mountains to the central government led by Maryland and a coalition of smaller states without western claims. The newly reorganized Congress at the time continued to refer itself as the Continental Congress throughout its eight-year history, although modern historians separate it from the earlier bodies, which operated under slightly different rules and procedures until the later part of American Revolutionary War

Speaker Of The United States House Of Representatives Election, October 2015
John Boehner Republican ELECTED SPEAKER Paul Ryan Republican An election for the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. House of Representatives
took place on October 29, 2015, during the 114th U.S. Congress . The election was necessitated by the announcement of Speaker John Boehner 's resignation, set for October 30. The Speaker of the House follows the Vice President in the line of succession to the presidency of the United States in accordance with the Presidential Succession Act . Due to friction within the Republican Party caucus, Boehner decided to step down as speaker and resign his seat in Congress. He scheduled a Republican caucus non-binding vote for speaker on October 8, and a full floor vote on October 29. Kevin McCarthy , the House Majority Leader and second-in-command to the Speaker, was initially viewed as the favorite to win the Speakership. However, due to the opposition of the Freedom Caucus , McCarthy dropped out of the race on October 8, and the caucus vote was postponed. Jason Chaffetz initially declared his candidacy to challenge McCarthy, and Bill Flores declared his candidacy after McCarthy withdrew, but both dropped out later to express their support for Paul Ryan , who entered the race after being widely viewed as a potential frontrunner
