Storyboard Text

  • A bill starts off as an idea. When Congress likes the idea, they write it into a bill and is stuck in committee until the bill is debated.
  • Once the bill is debated, it is sent to the House of Representatives where it will get voted on.
  • If the House of Representatives votes 'yes', the Bill gets sent to the Senate.
  • If Senate votes yes on the bill, it gets sent to the White House where it 'waits in a line' with a lot of other bills, waiting to get signed by the President.
  • Even if everyone votes yes, the president can still say no, which is called a Veto. The bill has to go through the process all over again, but it is unlikely that it will become a law now. 
  • If the president signs the bill, it finally becomes a law.
