The Earth Senate was the Legislative Branch of Earthgov and made up the central body of the EA government.
The Senate was comprised of representatives elected from each of the Earth Alliance member states, such as the Russian Consortium, the Indonesian Consortium and (from 2262 onwards) the independent colony worlds such as Mars. Alongside these are the Vice President of the Earth Alliance the President of the EA Senate. The Senate Military Bureau provides information regarding Earthforce laws and regulations.
Prior to 2258, the Bureau had stated that the use of telepathic scans in military hearings are allowed only to determine the truth of specific charges, not as blanket for loyalty checks. In 2258, this ruling was later contradicted by the policies of then Vice President Morgan Clark who instituted loyalty scans.
In 2260, the Senate held hearings into Morgan Clark's purported health and departure from Earthforce One shortly before it exploded on January 1, 2259. In retaliation, Clark declared Martial law and eventually dissolved the senate which he reformed with many of his own people in their place. Senator Crosby led the march on capturing President Clark at the end of the Earth Alliance Civil War.
- Senate Committee on Technology and Privacy: Formed in 2115 and initially considered to be a "do nothing" Committee, Senator Lee Crawford was made the chair for this committee as a way of pushing him to one side. When the existence of certifiable telepaths became public knowledge, the committee suddenly became very relevant. Aside from Senator Crawford, the Committee members included Senators Vladmir Tokash, Ledepa Koya, Crispin Dover and Ramira Alejandro with Dr. Alice Kimbrell: a neurochemist and the editor of the Medical Journal in which the discovery was published and Dr. Ortiz; a psychologist serving in an advisory capacity.
- Senate Committee on Metasensory Regulation: Formed in 2117, shortly after the discovery of certifiable human telepaths.
- Babylon 5 Senate Oversight and Appropriations Committee: Formed to oversee Babylon 5 until it's declaration of independence in 2260. Senator Hidoshi served as the Senate liaison in 2258.
- Senate Committee on Anti-Earth Activities: Formed after EA President Clark reconstituted the Senate in 2261 to hear testimonies from witnesses regarding alien sympathizers attempting to bring down Earthgov.
- Senate Committee on Metasensory Abilities: Formed in the wake of the Telepath War and the dissolution of Psi Corps to oversee the new Bureau of Telepath Integration.
