The number of voting representatives in the House is fixed by law at no more than 435, proportionally representing the population of the 50 states.

A resident commissioner represents Puerto Rico.
Majority and Minority Leadership Information
The majority party members and the minority party members meet separately to select their leaders. Third parties rarely have had enough members to elect their own leadership, and independents will generally join one of the larger party organizations to receive committee assignments. A party caucus or conference is the name given to a meeting of or organization of all party members in the House. During these meetings, party members discuss matters of concern.
The House’s committees consider bills and issues and oversee agencies, programs, and activities within their jurisdictions.
