COMPOSITION OF HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES


Section 3.  The house of representatives shall be composed of fifty-one members, who shall be elected by the qualified voters of the respective representative districts.  Until the next reapportionment, the representative districts and the number of representatives to be elected from each shall be as set forth in the Schedule. [Am Const Con 1978 and election Nov 7, 1978]


Note


  A proposal of the 1978 Constitutional Convention rewriting this section was not validly ratified.  Kahalekai v. Doi, 60 H. 324 (1979).  The revisor has deleted the textual changes under the authority of Resolution No. 29 of the 1978 Constitutional Convention.


Case Notes


  Consideration of validity of apportionment of Senate entails validity of apportionment of House, and legislature in dealing with former must be free to deal with latter.  384 U.S. 73, 83, upon review of 238 F. Supp. 418, 240 F. Supp. 724.
