Legislative Branch of American Samoa - Fono

The Legislature, or Fono, has two chambers.  It is autonomous in its disposition of local revenues and is the sole lawmaking body, although the governor has the power to veto legislation.  The House of Representatives has 21 members, elected for a two year term, 20 in single-seat constituencies and one by a public meeting on Swains Island.  The Senate also has 18 members, elected for a four year term by and from the chiefs of the islands.  Because American Samoa is an unincorporated, unorganized territory of the United States, not all provisions of the U.S. Constitution apply. Moreover, the United States has not provided an organic (charter) act setting forth a system of government. Instead, the U.S. secretary of the interior, who has had jurisdiction over the territory since 1951, gave American Samoa the authority to draft its own constitution (1967).
