Storyboard Text

  • Title of Bill 
  •  The No More killing of Hawksbill Turtle Act 
  • The Law Start With An Idea 
  • Awww, Last time I saw more of those turtles, Did they hurt them? We need to stop this! I need to contact someone to help me save them. 
  • The Bill is Introduced 
  • Elected Official
  • The Hawsbill Turtle is found in the tropical region of all the world's region. The turtles population has decreased 80% over this last century and I think we need to change that. 
  • The Bill Goes to Committee
  • Every bill comes from an idea. Someone would contact elected elected to share the idea with them. If the Elected Official  likes the idea and wants it to become a law. They will write a bill on it.  
  • Congress debates and votes
  • We vote that the bill should become a law
  • We believe the bill should be a law too
  • The bill can start in either house of congress, house of representatives or senate, when it is introduced by the sponsor. If it is sent to the house of representatives than the bill would be placed in a box called the "wooden box" 
  • Presidential Action
  • I am going to sign it 
  • The bill is talked about, researched, and changed, by the senators or the house of representatives in a small group. They could accept or reject the bill, it is also changed before it is sent to the house of representative or senate. They debate about the bill and decide to keep on researching the bill. 
  • The Senate or the house of representatives debate, about the bill. They could change the bill or amend the bill before voting on the bill. If the majority votes on the bill, it is sent to the other house to go through a similar process of a committee. They debate and vote again and have to agree on the same version of the bill before it goes through the president. 
  • The president looks at it and could sign it to become a law. Also it could get veto by the president. If congress is on session on the bill and the president does not respond to it in 10 days than it would automatically become a bill. If congress is not in session and the president does not answer in 10 days it does not turn into a bill.
