Transcript of Bill to Law...

From a bill to a law, yo. First, the legislation is introduced. In the House, the bill is handed to the clerk of House or is put in the hopper. In the Senate, is given to a presiding officer and is shown to the Senate the next morning. Then, there is Committee Action. The bill is referred to the appropriate committee by the Speaker of the House or the presiding officer in the Senate. There are seven steps to Committee Action. 1. Comments about the bill's merit are requested by government agencies. 2. Bill can be assigned to subcommittee by Chairman. 3. Hearings may be held. 4. Subcommittees report their findings to the full committee. 5. Finally there is a vote by the full committee - the bill is "ordered to be reported." 6. A committee will hold a "mark-up" session during which it will make revisions and additions. 7. After the bill is reported, the committee staff prepares a written report explaining why they favor the bill and why they wish to see their amendments. In the House, there is one more step. There, most bills go to the Rules committee before reaching the floor. Floor Action!!!!!!!! Part one of Floor Action: Legislation is placed on the Calendar. Part Deux..... DEBATE!!!! Tres: Let the voting commence!! Then it goes to the Conference Committee. Uno there is: Members from each house form a conference committee and meet to work out the differences. Dos: If the Conference Committee reaches a compromise, it prepares a written conference report, which is submitted to each chamber. Und three: The conference report must be approved by both the House and the Senate. The bill is then sent to the President for review. A bill becomes law if signed by the President or if not signed within 10 days and Congress is in session. If Congress adjourns before the 10 days and the President has not signed the bill then it does not become law. This is a Pocket Veto. If the President vetoes the bill it is sent back to Congress with a note listing his/her reasons. Then... IT IS A LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
