In the Haus der Bürgerschaft (House of the citizens) on the Marktplatz - right in the centre of Bremen - members of parliament debate and wrestle for majorities. They make or amend motions. They pass or amend laws. The parliament legislates on the budget and controls the government. It acts through the speakers of the various parliamentary groups and with the members of the Senate in public session, in front of mostly packed stands and under the eyes and ears of journalists.
