Bill to law
By: Kaylah & Briana
IDEA: How does a bill become a law???
The hearings are completed and the subcommittee may meet to mark up the bill which is make changes and amendments to recommending the bill to the full committee. If a subcommittee votes not to report legislation to the full committee the bill doesn't even mean anything . If the committee votes for the bill it would be sent to the floor.
Bills are then assigned a number and referred to the appropriate committee, who then might assign it to a subcommittee . The following actions can be taken in committee:
1. Hold public hearings. The Hearings provide the opportunity to put on the record the views of the executive branch, experts, other public officials and supporters, and opponents of the legislation.
2. mark up a bill with changes and suggest that it be passed . 3. replace the original bill with a new bill 4. ignore the bill and let it die which id called pigeonholing the bill 5. kill the bill outright by the majority vote.
