Storyboard Text

  • The Story of Bills Becoming Laws.
  • I'm going to put my bill in the hopper.
  • My bill passed. Now, you need to do the right thing with it!
  • I'll take a look.
  • Bills are proposed laws that members of Congress create and then bring before their respective house.
  • This bill could be terrible. We need strength in our economy... (a long time later) ...We need to filibuster this bill.
  • In the Senate a Senator stands up and announces the bill, while in the House of Representatives a bill is placed in the hopper. It is then sent to a legislative committee where most bills die, but those that survive are sent to the floor of the house they originated in.
  • VETO. I do not like this bill. I do not like it House of Reps.
  • Next a hearing is held to mark up the bill. The legislators vote on whether or not to pass the bill. If a majority of passing votes is reached, the bill goes to the president.
  • Other than dying in committee, a bill can be talked to death by legislators filibustering it.
  • When the bill reaches the president, he can confirm the bill or veto the bill so it does not become law.
  • If the president vetos a bill, it goes back to the house it originated in to either be revised, gotten rid of, or there can be a revote on the bill. If two thirds of the legislators vote to pass the bill the veto is overridden and the bill becomes law.
  • Who cares what the President says. We can beat his veto.
