ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the unfair representation of urban legislatures in the U.S. Congress. A report made this year by the American Political Science Association points up the socio economic results of unrepresentative democracy in the states. "This rural dominance," says the report, is one reason why, the states have not always been able to cope with the greater problems of an urbanized society, such as housing, metropolitan transportation fares, price control on foods, social insurance and community planning beyond city limits.
