Storyboard Text

  • I just came up with an idea for a bill! I hope it others like it!
  • Hi! My name is Benjamin Franklin, but you can call me Ben.  Right now the Senate is introducing a bill. They're getting ready to send it to the committees!
  • This is a part of the Committees. They usually turn a Bill to a subcommittee after done studying it. The subcommittee decides, studies, revises and passes the bill back to the full House or Senate, where they then revise the bill again, or make any further alterations.
  •  This is where both the Senate and the House vote on their respective versions of the bill, and if it receives enough of them, it goes to the Conference Committees 
  • The bill must be approved by both sides of Congress (the Senate and the House of Representatives). If it gets approved, then both sides change it to the U.S.'s best interests.  The final compromise is embodied in a Conference Report that must be agreed to by both chambers before it is cleared for presidential consideration.
  • After the bill gets passed by both Chambers, they send it to the President. If granted, it becomes a public law. If he disagrees, he will refuse to sign it and veto it. However, the President can not act for ten days, it automatically becomes law. If Congress adjourns and sends it back to the President within 10 days, it is automatically named the pocket veto.
  • The law is made into a physical copy, and they come on small slips or singular publications. Later it is organized in the order which it was passed. It is, finally, codified into subject order so that all laws on the same topic fall together.
