There’s no requirement that the House be 435 members. Reducing it to 400 members will make it more manageable, and will decrease the amount of money the federal government has to pay on House members’ salaries.
The House of Representatives should be made bigger, not smaller. At its current size, the House is already incapable of properly representing all constituents’ views and responding to their needs — decreasing the chamber’s size will only make this problem worse.
