Transcript of The bill begins

Presidents Choice
The bill begins
All of the laws in the U.S.A. begin as a bill. before a bill becomes a law,It must be approved by the U.S. house of Representatives, the U.S. senate, and the president.

When the bill reaches committee, the committee members and groups of representatives who are experts on topics such as education and international relations they review, research, and revise the topic before voting on whether or not to send it to the house floor.
If the committee members would like more information before deciding if the bill is sent to the house floor, the bill is sent to subcommittee, the bill is closely examined and expert opinions are gathered before the bill is sent back to committee for approval.

The bill goes through committee.
• When the bill goes to the President, he or she can do one of three things.
• First, he can sign the bill into a law.
• He can veto the bill (the veto can be overpowered by a 2/3 vote from the House of Representatives).
• He can pocket the bill or think about for 10 days. If in 10 days he does not do something with the bill and Congress is in session, it automatically becomes a law. If Congress is not in session, it does not become a law.

our inquiry is:
how do the three branches of government make and pass laws.

our conjecture is:
we think they go through a long process of steps to make and pass laws.
When a bill is presented in the House of Representatives, a bill clerk assigns it a # that begins with H.R. A reading clerk reads the bill to all the Representatives, and the Speaker of the House sends the bill to one of the House standing committees.
The power of the executive is vested in the president. The president can veto or except a law. Every day, the president of the United States is faced with scores of decisions each with important consequences for America’s future. Viva voice [voice vote] the speaker of the house asks the representatives who support the bill say ‘’aye’’ and those who oppose it say no. division: the speaker of the house asks those Representatives who support the bill to stand up and be counted, and then those who oppose the bill to stand up and be counted. Recorded: Representatives record their vote using the electronic voting system Representatives can vote to say yes or, no or present [if they don’t want to vote].
In the U.S. House of Representatives, a bill is introduced when it is placed in the hopper—a special box on the side of the clerk’s desk. Only Representatives can introduce bills in the U.S. House of Representatives.
