  • Affordable College Tuition
  • State College Tuitions Should Be More Affordable Shruthi Gopinath
  • An Idea Is Formed
  • Hmm,.. It would be so much easier if state colleges could make their tuitions more affordable for the average family
  • My brother got accepted into his  dream college but he was unable to attend due to the expensive tuition cost. 
  • A Bill Is Introduced
  • Period 5 Mrs. Sheehan
  • The Bill Goes To Committee
  • I agree because it makes it sound much more compelling and sympathetic
  • An idea is formed for a bill that someone believes should be passed and become a law. 
  • Congress Debates and Votes
  • When your name is called say "aye" or "no" based on your perspective of the bill
  • Now the bill must be introduced to either house of Congress. Today, I will bring it to the attention of the Senate with Senator Cory Booker sponsoring this bill.
  • Presidential Action
  • Once passed by either house of Congress, the bill is looked at further in committees based on the category the bill falls under. They make edits before it is sent back again to the house or Senate.
  • This line of the bill should state that  "due to the   excessively expensive  tuition for  state colleges nowadays, many students with great potential are being deprived of a wonderful education that could lead them to a  successful life  because they were not able to pay  tuition fees." 
  • Now the bill will go back to either house of Congress to debate. Once the majority of the first house votes for the bill it moves onto the next house and must be voted for by the majority Both houses of Congress must agree on the final copy of the bill.
  • Aye
  • Aye
  • Aye
  • When the bill passes both houses and reaches the president, he has four options: - He can sign making the bill a law -Veto it which can be overridden by Congress -Pocket Veto -Or if Congress is in session, after 10 days of no answer from the president it becomes law automatically
  • I will sign in favor of this bill now making it law. It seems practical for average families in the United States considering the minimum wage. Every parent dreams of sending their kids to amazing colleges but it would not be possible with expensive tuition fees.
