  • Bill
  • It first starts out as an idea by constituents. Then it's to be shared with a representative.
  • The House
  • Sure.
  • Senate
  • Then it is shared with a representative, and then he/she writes the bill to be sent to the House. 
  • The bill is given a number, read aloud, and examined by committee. Once approved, it's given to all members of the House and they debate to support the bill or not. It's read again and again to fix it and they vote. If the majority of the votes are yes, that means it can go to Senate.
  • The bill is sent to Senate, and it's just like what the House does. Then, both the House and the Senate work together to make a compromise bill that they can both accept. They each take a vote and the bill is passed unless they both pass the exact same version.
  • Lastly, the President hopefully signs the bill. If not, the president can veto the bill and then Congress members have to vote again. Or the President could ignore the bill and if Congress is in session, the bill can become a law after 10 days.
  • Wow! This would be a great law!
