A bill is proposed legislation under consideration by a legislature.Some bills become a law but it takes 10 steps until a bill is finally a law.
That's a good question Roger!
but miss how does a bill become a law, what are the steps for a bill to become a law?
Roger is kinda hot.
The House of Representatives is the lower chamber of the U.S. congress and part of the legislative branch.The House of Representatives and the Senate compromised the legislature of the United States.
Step 1:Members from the House or the Senate introduce bills for the consideration by Congress.The house clerk assigns a number to the bill for example;(H.R.1002) and the Senate clerk assigns a bill to the Senate which for example would look like this;(S.1002).
What exactly is the House of Representatives?
Step 2:A committee is assigned to study a bill according to its subject.The committee will then refer the bill to a subcommittee.The subcommittee may request reports from government agencies, hold hearings so experts and parties that are interested have an opportunity to offer a testimony to revise or report the bill to the legislation.Then the full committee may make a recommendation to pass, revise,release or to lay the bill aside.Got that Roger?
Step 3:The bill is returned to the full house or senate for further debate and approval.At this pont members may propose amendments to the bill, add additional text or otherwise alter the bill.Step 4:House and senate vote on their respective versions of the proposed bill.
Step 5: Both chambers of congress must approve the bill.When the Senate amends and agrees to a bill that the house had already passed the two chambers begin to resolve any legislative differences between the House and the Senate versions of the bill by way of a conference committee.
