Storyboard Text

  • She introduced the bill to a member of Congress.
  • Teachers should be paid more because they not only have to teach students but also babysit them.
  • They all voted and agreed to pass the bill.
  • The congressman went and passed the bill to the House of Representatives.
  • I would like to say that I think teachers should get a fair salary based on how good they can teach.
  • Does anyone want to change the bill?
  • I disagree with your statement.
  • If you ever wondered how a bill is passed to a law, the first 2 steps is to introduce the problem and have it be introduced to the Committee.
  •  Teachers should get a better pay salary because teachers work hard with students while teaching them too.
  • Step 3 and 4: The bill gets passed to either the House of Representatives or Senate and they vote on it. When they vote, their votes will be in the computer showing whether they agree with the bill or not. If the bill gets agreed in the House of Representatives, then it will pass down to Congress.
  • Does everyone agree on passing the bill?
  • Step 5: The bill gets passed down to the Senate and they hold hearings and make changes to the bill if they want to.
  • I have signed the bill and it is now a law.
  • Step 6: The Senators give an effort to try convince other Senators to pass or kill the bill by giving speeches and debate. The senate could agree to end the debate only if their tired of a filibuster, which is a tactic to delay voting. If the bill passes then both houses will discuss the matter.
  • Step 7: Both Houses need 51% overall for the bill to pass. The House needs 218 votes while the Senate needs 51 votes in their side. If the Houses pass 51% overall then the bill will pass on to the president.
  • Step 8: When the bill gets sent to the president, he can either sign or veto the bill. If the bill passes or gets signed, then the bill becomes a law however, it is only if Congress is in session. If they are not in session then the bill will die after 10 days which is called pocket veto.
