The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 3 - Paragraph 3

No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

Just as with the Representatives, this provision is to assure each State that only qualified individuals will be sent to work in the Senate.
