Next, the House Rules Committee decides how the debate will be run in the House of Representatives. As usual, they will allow a one hour debate before voting. Then, the Bill is added to the House calendar.
Now it's time for the Senate to vote! Although there were some opponents of the bill, logrolling encouraged more than half of the Senators to vote for it, so now the House will vote. The debate was short, despite having no time limit and filibustering being allowed.
After their one hour debate, the House also votes to pass the bill.
And that's how a bill becomes a law!
Now that both the House and Senate have agreed to pass the bill, a Conference Committee smooths out the differences between the House and the Senate bill.
Then the Bill goes to the President! As a supporter of the middle and lower class, he decides to sign the bill into law. However, if the President vetoed the bill, Congress could override this with a 2/3 vote in favor of the bill.
Now Owen and other young adults in the same situation can go to college without taking on a life-long financial burden!
