Storyboard Text

  • Dear Representative McElreft,  I am strongly concerned of citizens from Carteret County because of the increasing amount of drunk drivers and the accidents they are causing, which puts other citizens in the road in danger too. Something has to be done in order to stop this problem.
  • I agree with the bill, we have to keep the citizens safe!
  •  ! I think it's a good idea !
  • I disagree, there is no way we can do it
  • A citizen from Carteret County has got the attention of Representative McElreft to create a bill regarding drunk drivers and a way to solve this problem so no citizen gets hurt.  The bill has been sent to the Bill Drafting Division to make the bill in to language appropriate.
  • !We vote yes!
  •  I vote yes !
  • I vote no
  • The new drafted bill is Introduced to the N.C. House of Representatives by Representative McElreft. The bill passed it's first reading.
  • ! We agree with the amendments !
  • ! Me too !
  • After the bill passed it's first reading the speaker of the house has assigned the bill to the Judiciary Committee. Here they decide if the bill needs any amendments and if it "passes" committee. They define possible effects of the bill.
  • !!! Ok, It's a law !!
  •  After the bill passed the Judiciary committee, it has been send to the full membership of the senate, where it will be debated. Since the vote was favorable, the bill is said to have passed its second reading and moves to its third and final reading, were there may be more debate.
  •  Since amendments were made by the senate it has to go back so the amendments that were made can be approved. The bill is also rewritten including all the changes that were made so it looks good for the governor.
  • The Governor decided that this bill was a good idea and for the safe of the citizen made it into a law.
