This storyboard does not have a description.
A Senator introduces the bill, which is sent to a committee.
Same procedure as in the House. If the committee majority votes for the bill, it goes to the whole Senate.
Majority leader decides when the whole Senate will consider the bill.
The Bill is debated, and amendments may be added. If a majority votes in favor of the bill, it is returned to the House.
If the House rejects any of the changes, the bill goes to a conference committee of members from both houses. It works out a compromise. A senator may filibuster to avoid passing a bill that they do not want; however, it can be prevented by a cloture motion. Logrolling may also occur to help pass each other's bills.
Both houses must approve changes made by the conference committee. If approved, the bill goes to the president.
