  • You are right! Students need to get exercise every day to make sure they lose weight.
  • Citizens go to their local representatives.
  • I wrote the bill down. Let us hope that it goes through!
  • By Vikaas Dindigal Period 5
  • The bill is handed to the committee.
  • I agree.
  • Me too!
  • Step 1: A citizen thinks of an idea to help society.
  • The bill goes to the Senate.
  • How many people agreed to pass this bill?
  • Step 2: The citizen goes to a representative near them. The representative signs the idea so that it becomes a bill.
  • The bill goes to the president.
  • I, President Obama will sign this bill. This will help students get it better shape!
  • Step 3: The bill goes to the committee and is debated to move on as a bill. 
  • Physical Education is important for kids to do. I am passing the bill.
  • Step 4: The bill goes to the Senate and is decided whether it should move to the last step or not.
  • More than 2/3. Just enough people to pass it on!
  • Step 5: The bill finally gets handed to the president! If the president signs the bill it becomes a law. If they veto the bill, the bill gets sent back to congress who has to have 2/3 of the members to sign it to override the veto. (In this case, the president will not veto the bill and sign it.)
