  • House  and Senate Rules -The bill is set on the  calendar  where all 100 senators can vote(many for their constituents) on it and many at the same time until the bill becomes popular enough and passed to the floor. -The floor debate is where the senators will talk about the bill and unless one objects, they can keep talking, sometimes creating a filibuster.  - The House  rules committee  , considers all   bills  reported from policy and fiscal   committees  and determines whether, and in what order, to schedule their consideration on the floor of the House.
  • House  and Senate Rules A   quorum is the minimum number of members of an assembly that must be present at any of its meetings to make the proceedings of that meeting valid.   A filibuster is when A senator(s) want to elongate the making of a bill and have a "meeting" and can read whatever they want as long as they keep reading or talking. A cloture  is a procedure for ending a debate and making a final vote.

  • Presidential actions The president can veto a bill(saying he doesn't want it) which will be sent back to congress for a 2/3 vote from both houses to become a law. He/She can do a pocket veto while congress is not in order which will kill the bill. They can even  ignore it which after the 10th day the bill will become a law. Lastly, they can sign the bill making it a law.
