In the Senate, during a debate, a congressman may decide to filibuster which can go on for an unlimited number of time unless two-thirds of the Senators present and voting, vote to end the filibuster. This process called 'Cloture motion" is the only way the Senate can end a filibuster.
In the House, the House Calendar is a calendar which schedules major bills.
. . .
Once voted on in the House, the bill is then sent to the Senate and vice versa depending on who proposed the bill first.
Once an identical and revised version of a bill is put forth by both houses of Congress, the bill is then giving to the President for signing.
If the president were to not sign or veto the bill after ten days it was sent to them and Congress is no longer in session, then the bill has been pocket vetoed.
