Storyboard Text

  • I want to draft a bill!
  • You should go find a member of Congress to introduce your bill, it could be placed in the hopper.
  • The committee makes changes and amendments prior to recommending the bill to the full committee. If a subcommittee votes not to report legislation to the full committee, the bill dies. If the committee votes for the bill, it is sent to the floor.
  • I'm the speaker of the House, I'll refer this bill to the appropriate committee.
  • Our committee will examine the bill, held a hearing, and then "mark-up" the bill.
  • Bills are placed on one of four House Calendars. We will decide what will reach the floor and when.
  • I'm the Majority Leader of the House.
  • I'm the Majority Leader of the Senate. The legislation is placed on the Legislative Calendar, and I'll schedule the legislation.
  • A debate will be held. The debate is limited to 1 hour for the House but no limit for the Senate. A filibuster, a political procedure to delay or entirely prevent a decision being made on the proposal, could be used during the debate.
  • Cloture or, informally, a guillotine is a motion or process in the parliamentary procedure aimed at bringing the debate to a quick end could limit the length of the Senate debate.
  • blablabla...
  • After receiving a subcommittee's report on a bill the full committee votes on its recommendation to the House or Senate. This procedure is called "ordering a bill reported."
