Do you think we should have a four day school week?
How about we make a bill and present it to parliament?
This is when the bill is first introduced to Parliament and the mp's debate and vote on it. If they vote no, the bill will be deemed 'dead', but if they vote yes, it will go to a select committee.
This is a group of people who gather as much evidence as they can about the bill. This process can take up to 6 months. They also read the public submissions.
This is the second reading. The mp's vote and debate about it again with the new evidence from the select committee. Then they vote on it. If they vote no, the bill is 'dead' but if they vote yes, it goes to the house committee.
Then the bill goes to the house committee where 120 mp's debate about it.
Then the bill goes to the third reading. If they vote no, the bill is deemed 'dead', but if they vote yes, it goes to the Governor General.
I am now signing the bill to become a law that all New Zealander's must follow. I am giving it its Royal Assent.
