By 2019motterj, Updated
Its a thing that deals with civics and bills
Today we are going to learn about Bills, and not the one I am on!
The first step to a Bill becoming a Law is Drafting.
Members of Congress, the Executive branch, and /or Interest Groups may write or "draw up" Bills
The Speaker of the House then sends the Bill to a committee based on what the Bill affects
The second step depends on the representatives. Only they can introduce Bills into the House!
The Fourth step allows the committee to table, amend, or vote on the bill
Unfortunately most Bills die here. If the Bills passes, it goes to the Rules Committe.
The Fifth step has the Rules Committee decide the rules for the debate and when the Bill will come up for a debate
A Senator then introduces the Bill and it is sent to a committee. It goes through the same process again, and if the majority vote in favor, it is sent to the whole Senate.
The House then debates the Bill and may add amendments, if a majority votes in favor of the Bill, then it will go to the senate.
