Storyboard Text

  • I've got a great idea for a bill that should be passed. I think college should be free for everyone! (hypothetical)
  • First I need to contact my local members of Congress. I will email Richard Burr who will hopefully accept and introduce the bill in Congress.
  • I propose and introduce a bill from one of our fellow citizens. This bill proposes that all college tuition should be free.
  • The bill is assigned to a committee (e.g. education). The main committee may then be signed to a subcommittee. The bill passes out of subcommittee and committee hearings if it is approved by a majority
  • YES!
  • The bill is sent to the House or Senate, debated, and voted upon. It may be approved by a majority vote or denied.
  • Senate
  • House of Representatives
  • NAY
  • If the bill is passed to the Senate it can be debated, filibustered (tactic used to delay or stop a bill by making long floor debates and speeches. It can also be passed on.
  • If passed on to the House of Representatives it can be debated, pigeonholed (ignore or set aside w/o considering it). It can also be passed on.
  • YEA
