Storyboard Text

  • You know what, I think I might do just that, thanks!
  • Hey Richard! I was thinking what if we stop producing pennies and just use the ones we already have? I mean, it costs more to make a penny than what it's worth!
  • You should write to our state representative. It sure would help with the nation's debt!
  • Dear State Representative, I'm sure you know that the making        of the penny costs more than what the penny is worth and the amount of debt in which the country is. A simple solution to these problems is to stop the production of pennies. Please consider.  Sincerely,         Pennywise
  • I just received a letter from one of my constituents   suggesting a possible solution to a major problem that could  benefit our country greatly. I think we should try and make it a law. What do you all say?
  • The Next Day
  • LET'S DO IT!
  •  The Printing Committee decides if this bill is beneficial enough to attempt getting passed as a law.  Eventually, they concur that it is, in fact, worth a shot, and they send it to the subcommittees.
  • We spend millions upon millions of dollars making pennies, when we could be at least trying to pay off our debt! Let's try for a law!
  • Pro-Bill/ Anti-Penny
  • Think of all the money we'd be saving!
  • Here, they examine the bill, pointing out the ups and downs of having it made into a law. They agree on the resolution, and transport the bill back to the standing committee.
  • We could make the bill say that the production of pennies illegal, unless we are ever     at a shortage.
  • Yes, but what if we run out of pennies? Did you ever think about that??
  • First we lose Pluto, and now this!
  • Anti-Bill/ Pro-Penny
  • The subcommittees added that the process of making pennies is against the law, unless we ever run out. What do you all think?
  • The bill had to come back to the standing committee to get looked over one last time before it goes to the Rule Committee.
  • Sounds good!!
