How A Bill Becomes A Law
The Bill goes to Committee
The Bill is sent to the proper committee to be debated, and/or edited to the houses' specifications.
Bill is Reported
This is where the house members vote on the passing of the bill to the house floor. Once reported, it can be debated by the US House of Representatives.
The Bill is referred to the Senate
When a bill reaches the U.S. Senate, it goes through many of the same steps it went through in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill is discussed in a Senate committee and then reported to the Senate floor to be voted on.
