Mission Statement:

The Center for Senate Reform and Realignment (CSRR) is a non profit organization dedicated to the mission of advancing and promoting the passage of a Constitutional Amendment to disrupt, reform and realign the U.S Senate of the United States of America by passing a Constitutional Amendment to add thirty three new U.S. Senators to represent the most populated Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA's) in the United States. 


Key Points for Consideration :


- The U.S. Senate is inherently dysfunctional.

  One of the reasons for this condition is the Senate's fundamental geo-            political distribution of power. The same problems the founding fathers          negotiated 236 year ago are still prevalent today.

    Small States / Large States 

    Urban / Rural

    Northern States / Southern States

    Social, Cultural and Economic Disharmony


  The DNA of the senate needs to be reimagined, reformed and realigned.  


- The United States, in the 21st Century, is a nation of Cities. 

​- Each small, medium and large City is classified as a Metropolitan                    Statistical Area (MSA) by The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and      the information database is used extensively by the Census Bureau. 


- All metropolitan urban entities (Cities) should be viewed relative to                their MSA's which can range in size from 50K to several Million (NYC 20 M.).


- Today, 85% of the (334M.) U.S. population lives within an urban                      environment and the trend towards more urbanization will only continue.

  One half of the U.S. population lives within one of the 45 largest MSA's.

- The entire urban population living in the U.S. has been and continues to be      marginalized and disenfranchised by not being adequately represented            within the U.S. Senate.

- The Constitution was written during an agrarian period in our countries           history (4 Million People) ( 80% Rural) and it needs to be updated and             amended to reflect this shift to a predominately urban society today.

- The Constitution, relative to the U.S. Senate, is biased against urbanism.

   The "Grand Compromise" of the 1787 Constitutional Convention codified           this anti-urban bias. (2 Senators per State)

 - The 33 largest MSA's are equal to or greater than 14 states.

   The dividing line is approximately 2 million people. 

   These 14 smallest (population size) States wield an inordinate amount             of power within the U.S. Senate, representing 28% of the Senate.


- The 33 largest MSA's share the equivalency qualifications of Statehood and      should therefore be represented in the U.S. Senate. 

  Each MSA would be represented in the Senate with one Senator.

- A third level of governance, representing the 33 MSA's, can and should be        introduced into the Constitution through a Constitutional Amendment.
