How can we replace the weak Articles of Confederation? We need to after Shays rebellion.
i propose the virginia plan, its a bicamel, and representation in congress is based of population in the state.
i propose the New Jersey plan, its is unicamel and instead of population as representation, there is equal representation in all states.
We cant have the northern states regulate trade.
I like the Virginia plan more, so that is what we will be using from now on.
But i would like the New Jersey plan for my state more. We would also like to regulate trade
OK so south carolina is now going to follow the viginia plan and have more representation based on population, while your state can follow the New Jersey plan. Also the congress will regulate trade, instead of fighting over it.
This is the great compromise.
Everyone validates these rules, and ratifies these laws. They leave to inform the states.
