Bill of law

By Justin Cochran, Jesse Sawyer

-Every bill starts with a sentence.

-A senator of Representative must introduce a bill before Congress will consider it

-After a bill is introduced, it is sent to the sent to the standing committee that is related to the subject of the bill

-Bills approved in committee are ready for consideration by the full house or senate

-When bills do reach the floor of the House or Senate, the members argue their pros and cons and discuss and discuss amendments

-After a bill is debated, it is brought to a vote. Voting in the House is done in one of three ways, Voice vote, Standing Vote, and Roll-call vote. The Senate and House must pass a bill in identical form before it becomes a law.

-After a bill is approved, it goes to the president. The president may sign the bill and declare it a new law.

-The president may also veto the bill.
