The outcome of the negotiations of the Conference Commission in State Legislatures is referred to by Donald Gross, House-Senate conference committees: a comparative state perspective, American Journal of Political Science, 24, 1980, 769-78. In Washington, for decades, it was thought that party discipline in Congress was very low. It was fair and in the sense that national party organizations have little means of imposing discipline by punishing representatives and senators who, if recognized, oppose the party`s position on certain issues. But what has changed in recent decades is the degree of voluntary consensus in the vote in Congress. If such joint meetings were held regularly, they would allow the Australian House to prevail against the Senate (if both houses were brought together to support their legislative positions) because there are twice as many members in the House of Representatives as senators. But it is precisely because these procedures are too impractical for regular use and, above all, to reach agreement on legislation that requires rapid adoption, that the constitutional capacity of the House of Representatives to impose itself through the Senate has little practical effect.
