  • How A Bill Becomes A Law
  • Idea
  • Hey, yesterday I was thinking about how the voting age should be lowered to age 16.
  • Yes! I should!
  • I agree! You should write to a representative and it should become a bill!
  • Taking Action
  • Period 1
  • Discussion & Debate
  • This should become a law!!
  • This shows constituents having an idea in mind. 
  • Voting & Approving
  • Bill Approved!
  • HoR
  • I'm totally signing this!!
  • Senate
  • This is getting sent to the president!
  • Should I sign, or veto this bill? Hmm
  • A representative takes a seat and takes the time to write the bill. 
  • Presidents Approval
  • Well I made my decision. I am going to make this a law!
  • The bill then goes into committee for discussion and debate.
  • Make this a law!
  • I don't agree.
  • The House approves the bill and it then gets sent to the Senate. The Senate also approves this bill.  
  • The bill then gets sent to the president. He/She can veto the bill or sign it. If the bill gets vetoed Congress can overturn that veto by voting that it should become a law. If the results are 2/3 then it can become a law. In this case the president chose to sign the bill.
