Congress is the name given to the two bodies of the legislative branch. These are the Senate and the House of Representatives. Together they make the body called Congress. The main job of these bodies is to write and pass laws that are sent to the president to sign or veto.

The general assembly is different from the US Congress because the US Congress is for the entirety of the United States. The general assembly, on the other hand, is usually for a single state, such as the Georgia General Assembly, or the Iowa General Assembly. Other than that, the two are very similar.

Congress is the federal government and the General Assembly is the state government. Another difference is Congress has the House of Representatives and the General Assembly has the House of Delegates.

Congress means "a meeting of delegates from several countries". The Founding Fathers of the United States chose this as the name of the legislative assembly of the Federal Government, to emphasise the fact the country was made up of several countries. Some non-federal countries call their legislative assembly a Congress, and some federal countries use it for the names of provincial legislative assemblies. This usage is technically incorrect.

Many countries have a National Assembly. It can refer a single chamber legislative assembly, it can refer to both houses of a double chamber assembly, or it can refer to the lower house of a double chamber assembly.
