Have you heard about the Purple Book Continuity Act? It was introduced by Congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo, of California.
Yes, I've heard of that! I even know about the 7 steps for a bill becoming a law. 1: Creation of a Bill- (This was Anna Eshoo's role by introducing it) 2: Committee Action- Committes are assigned the bill and study it. They can revise, report or release the bill.
Wow! Great Job! Let's work together to finish the steps! 3: Floor Action- The bill is returned to the house/senate to further revise. 4: Vote- House and Senate members vote on the bill 5: Conference Committees- Members of the chambers, gather and resolve any differences made between the house and senate in a conference committee.
The final 2 steps include: 6: Presidential Action- The bill is sent to the president for his signature or approval. He can also veto or delay by pocket vetoing. 7: Creation of a law- Lastly, the bill is copied, published and put into effect!
Wow, that is so cool! While the Purple Book Continuity Act is still in the process and hasn't fully been passed yet, we now know the steps needed to pass bills!
