At this point members may propose amendments to the bill, add additional text, or otherwise alter the bill.STEP 4: Vote House and Senate members vote on their respective versions of the proposed bill.
  • STEP 6: Presidential Action After the bill is passed by both Chambers it is sent to the President for his approval or his signature, which if granted creates a Public Law.A vetoed bill may return to Congress for reconsideration. If the President does not act within 10 days the bill automatically becomes law. If Congress adjourns during the 10 days after the bill is sent to the President and he does not sign it, the bill is automatically vetoed. This process is also known as a pocket veto.
  • STEP 7: The Creation of a Law The Office of Federal Register assigns the Public Law a number and the Government Printing Office prints a copy of it. Laws are issued first in slip form  containing one law.
