The congressmen show up to work bright and early to begin discussing the transfer of the Disaster Relief support from a Bill to a Law.
Once the committee members settle in, they share their thoughts on the bill and decide to propose the idea to the House and Senate.
The committee members propose the bill to the Senate and wait for their approval.
The senators are discussing the Bill and this is known as the floor debate. The man speaking opposes the bill while the other senators are for the bill, so the senator speaking will continue to speak for a good amount of time to post pone the passing of the bill. This is known as a filibuster.
The remaining Senators take a vote to cut off the senator speaking because they feel he is only wasting time, this is known as a cloture motion. The speaker of the Senate then has a chance to approve the Bill and pass it along to the House of representatives. Now the members of the house have the opportunity to discuss their thoughts on the bill.
The representatives are not very fond of this Bill, so the Senate proposes a deal that if the House votes in favor of this bill, then the senate will vote in favor of the next bill the house is in favor of. This agreement is called logrolling.
