Which State Has Only One Legislative House?

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Most states in the United States have two legislative “houses”, a House of Representatives, and a Senate (although some states may call them something else). In many states the two houses are referred to as an “upper house” (the senate) and a “lower house”.

But one state in the United States has only one house. They have a Senate, but no House of Representatives or other lower house.


Which state is it, and what is the technical term for this system?
