There were several "plans" presented at the convention. But the one presented first, which became the basis of discussion was the "Virginia Plan" written mainly by James Madison (one reason he was called "the father of the Constitution") and introduced by fellow Virginian, Edmund Randolph. It included two houses, both elected on the basis of a state's population.

The other "plan" people most associate with the Constitution was the "Connecticut Plan", which broke the impasse between those who favored equal representation for each state in at least one house of the national legislature (as under the Articles of Confederation in which each state voted as a block, just as the Continental Congresses and the Constitutional Convention itself voted) and those who advocated all representation be based on population (as in the Virginia Plan), so that larger states would send more representatives, each of whom would have his own vote. That one house should be by population had already been agreed upon when the Connecticut Plan's proposal that the "upper house" (later named the Senate) would have the same number of representatives from each state.

There were two opposing plans for how the new Congress should work. One stated that the number of representatives each state would have should be decided by population. The other stated that each state should have the same number of representatives. Neither party would budge, so a compromise was eventually made. In response to the two opposing plans for the creation of the Congress, a compromise was proposed by Roger Sherman of Connecticut. He said that there would be two houses of Congress: the House of Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representatives would reflect a state's population, while the Senate would have an equal number of representatives for each state--two.
