Why doesn't the school bus have seatbelts, especially in this terrible weather?
I don't feel comfortable sending my children off on this unsafe bus!!!
A proposition for the bill is written down and dropped in a box (hopper) until a member of the House reads it
Speaker of the house refers the (public) bill to the house committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. It is then assigned to a subcommittee on Highways and Transit for a hearing.
After the hearing, the bill is revised . In amending the bill, John of the committee requests that more bus signs be put up in school neighborhoods. Rick accepts this because he really wants the bill passed and adds it as a rider. This is an example of logrolling.
Upcoming! House debate on School Bus Seat Belts! December 3rd!
The quorum (minimum number of congressmen) arrives and the Transportation and Infrastructure committee leads them in the debate.
