Bill Becomes Law

By Blaize Brown and Liam Pyle

The Basics

There are many steps on how a bill becomes a law.

  1. First you need an idea
  2. It's introduced to congress
  3. It goes to either house of senate
  4. It gets amended
  5. It goes to the opposite side of congress (from senate to house or house to senate)
  6. If everyone agrees it's sent to the President
  7. The President can sign or veto
  8. If the President veto's the bill congress can over ride with a two thirds vote
