Anybody can have an idea for a bill
OMG! I just had an idea for a law! I'll tell a Congressperson so it can become a bill first.
But only a congress person can propose a bill
So, what do you guys think of my idea for a bill?
I like it
Yay or Nay on that bill?
And in a standing committee they decide if the bill will go to the House or the Senate
And if a bill passes the committee, all of Congress has to come back together and pass it with a majority vote
Yay or Nay on that bill now that we're all back together?
The bill then goes to the president who can sign it into a law, veto it, ignore it, or pocket veto it
Nah I don't approve of this bill, I'll veto it.
If the president vetoes it Congress can pass it into a law with a 2/3 majority vote from both the House and the Senate
One last time guys, Yay or Nay?
