I proposed a bill today to the hopper today!!! If congress rejects the bill today, it will be reintroduced next session.
I hope I get passed!!!!
Congrats!!! You got passed. Now on to committee work The committee will revise you to make you better and have a good chance of getting passed. I have a feeling that you will be passed because I have been logrolling with other Congress members. The Speaker of the House put you are on the House calendar.
Okay, as long as my morals/principals stay the same; I am fine with being changed
The Senate is currently debating over you. This could take a while cause one of the Senators is currently in the middle of a filibuster.
Yes, if 16 or more senators back the cloture motion, then the filibuster will come to an abrupt close. One was put in motion, but it was tabled.
Oh, is there any way to speed it up?
Yes, you got 60 yays and 40 nays. The House is still revising you though, so don't get too excited.
So, uh , they done debating?
In the House, they have finished revising you, and the 1 hour floor debate lead by the majority and minority leaders just came to a close. You got 219 yays and 216 nays. Now onto the president!!!
The president can either veto you or pocket veto (Leaving the bill unsigned so that it cannot be dealt with at the legislative session).
Yes, in fact 2/3 of both the House and Senate voted to pass you, and overrode the veto. You got passed!!
