Legislature of the State of Mississippi
Mississippi's first state constitution in 1817 created the Mississippi General Assembly, which was largely based on the United States Congress with a House of Representatives and a Senate. The 1832 Mississippi state constitution retained the House and Senate, but changed the name of both together to the Legislature of the State of Mississippi.
Miss. Const. of 1817, art. III, § 4; Miss. Const. of 1832, art. III, § 4.
