Storyboard Text

  • Firstly, a non-law has to be "noticed" and it has to cause some kind of issue.
  • Secondly, once its noticed, a member of Congress must introduce it to the House of Representatives.
  • Then, the bill is sent to a committee, where its decided whether it should be debated or not, and some debating rules are established.
  • After its "accepted" by the committee, the Senate and House debate and compromise the bill, and if its accepted by both, it gets sent to the president.
  • But, if the House rejects any "changes", the bill is sent to another (conference) committee. There, both houses have to agree and eventually make a compromise.
  • Finally, if the bill is passed by both houses, the president decides whether its approved or vetoed. If 2/3's of both houses vote to override the veto, then the bill is passed.
