Fact of the Day: Congressional House Limit

While the U.S. Senate is represented by two Senators of each U.S. state, the House of Representatives are represented based on a state's population. The first congress had only 59 representatives, and grew along with the country's population. However Congress in 1911 prevented that number from going higher than 435 regardless of population.

  14. I imagine they wouldn't be able to fit anymore into the chambers. Besides, there's already a gridlock as it is.
