I think we need a new law. I don't like how we always are late to school.
A law is a rough draft. It starts out as an idea. The idea can be from a citizen or a representative.
The the idea is introduced by a representative. The representative introduces the bill to the House of Representatives. Then they give it a title, number, and a sponsor.
The the bill is assigned to a standing committee to research, discuss and debate on it. If they need more research they send it to a subcommittee. But, the committee must approve it to move on.
After the committee approves the bill, it is sent to the House of Representatives Floor for debate and vote. The majority, votes to send it to the Senate.
After the majority of votes send it to the Senate it is introduced to the Senate. The Senate then gives it a title, number, and a Senate sponsor.
Then the Senate assigns the bill a Senate a Senate standing committee. It also can be sent to the subcommittee but must be approved by majority.
