  • The bill was then engrossed, which it is printed in its final form. It was read the third time and then the Speaker signed it. A legislative aid took the bill and placed it on the Senate's president's desk.
  • A voice vote was taken at the end and the bill passed.
  • No.
  • Aye!
  • No.
  • The processes in the Senate was very much similar to the processes in the House. The bill is numbered, titled, and given a summary and then received its first reading. It is then referred to the standing committee, subcommittee, and back to full committee for revisions and approval. Afterwards, the bill was passed to the floor to be debated on.
  • As debates went on, the majority of the Senate decided to amend the bill. They want to change the bill so that "[a]liens may stay in the U.S., and not be deported, by doing a certain amount of public work or community work per month."
  • The House and the Senate couldn't quite agree to either bill, so it was turned over to a conference committee, a temporary joint committee of the two houses. The committee made the compromised bill into, "An alien is allowed to stay in the U.S., and not get deported, if agreed to pay a certain small amount of tax per month. If payments are not reachable, then payments can be replaced with doing a certain amount of either community work or public work.
  • After the bill was finally accepted in both houses after the conference committee, the bill was sent to the President. Fortunately, the President agreed and signed the bill. The bill, after many processes, finally became a law.
  • Orange
  • Back at the homes and communities of the Latinos and Hispanics, as well as other aliens of different races, they celebrated the fact that deportations were unlikely. Even though certain standards were required for them to stay, they now have the opportunity of a better life in the U.S.
