Storyboard Text

  • Making a law isn't an easy process. Especially when it is a bill like that of the Renewable Energy Bill. But the system set in place by our founding fathers creates a fair system. 
  • Before a bill, a draft of a proposed law can become a law it must be signed by both chambers of Congress. This means both the Senate and House of Representatives. First the bill had to be passed by the relevant committee. 
  • In the case of the Renewable Energy Act, coming to a compromise between both the Republicans and Democrats was difficult. This is because Republicans argued that it was asking too much of the major companies and was dooming capitalism. Democrats argued that climate change was becoming a big enough issue to take to extreme measures.  
  • As I had stated previously, not every compromise comes to be as sweet as a candy shop, nor as sightly. Even with the agreement, the parties were able to come to a compromise in both chambers. The bill was voted upon and the majority supported the bill. After this, the bill was sent to a conference committee.
  • Once the committee has created a form of the bill that is a mix between that of the Senate and House of Representatives, it is given to the President. The President then signs the bill and a new law is created. For the Renewable Energy Act, President Trump vetoed the bill. So it went back to the chambers where the veto was overruled. Now a version of the original Renewable Energy Act is a law.
  • Now cars must release less than a certain amount of greenhouse gasses. Also, millions of dollars were put into solar cell installation and research. Last but certainly not least, when forests are cleared two trees native to the area must be planted in place of the one cut down.
