Transcript of How a BIll Becomes a Law

How a Bill
Becomes a Law 1. A Senator or a member of the House can propose a law. Ideas for laws can come from many sources such as citizens or the Governor. 2. The law becomes drafted as a bill. The Legislator
that proposed it can ask for other legislators to
be co-sponsors. 3. THe bill is introduced when its number, title, and source are read aloud either in the House or Senate. 4. The bill is then sent to a committee who reviews it and
makes the appropriate changes. Committees also hold
meeting which gives the public an opportunity to
speak about the bill. 5. If the committee approves the bill, it is then read in the opposite house. 6. It will be read for a third time if scheduled by
the Senate President or Assembly Speaker.
It is then voted on. The bill will be passed if it
receives the majority of the votes. 7. THis same process occurs in the
opposite house. After both houses agree on the bill, it is
sent to the President. If the President signs it,
it becomes a law.
