Hello, I am Virginia. I want to have the number of representatives based on the population, a strong national government, and two house legislature.
Hi I am James Madison.
The New Jersey Plan
I am William Paterson and This is the New Jersey Plan for the states.
Hi, I'm New Jersey. I want each state to have one vote and one house legislature.
The Great Compromise
I'm the Great Compromise. I said we should have two house legislature.
The lower house is for representatives to elect by votes and are based by population which made Virginia happy. The upper house would be for the senates chosen by the state legislature and each state no matter what size would have two senators which helped New Jersey.
