The Constitution Legislative
How a Bill becomes a Law
Step Two: The Congress Decision. Congress will hold a committee that will decide whether or not that the bill is a good idea and whether or not to send the Bill to the President.
Step Three: Presidential Veto. If the Bill has passed the Congress committee, the Bill is sent to the President, where he(or she- in the future) will decide to veto the bill or make it a law.
Step Four: Enforcement. If the bill was not vetoed, the Bill is now a law. The law would be enforced in the places it refers to.
