2 hours ago How a Bill Becomes a Law: The Legislative Process

Published: May 05, 2020
1. The bill is drafted. Any member of Congress – either from the Senate or the House or Representatives – who has an idea for a law can draft a bill.
2. The bill is introduced. Once the bill is drafted, it must be introduced. If a Representative is the sponsor, the bill is introduced in the House.
3. The bill goes to committee. As soon as a bill is introduced, it is referred to a committee. Both the House and Senate have various committees composed of groups of Congress members who are particularly interested in different topics such as health or international affairs.
4. Subcommittee review of the bill. Subcommittees are organized under committees and have further specialization on a certain topic. Often, committees refer bills to a subcommittee for study and their own hearings.
5. Committee mark up of the bill. When the hearings and subcommittee review are completed, the committee will meet to "mark up" the bill. They make changes and amendments prior to recommending the bill to the "floor".
6. Voting by the full chamber on the bill. Once the bill reaches the floor, there is additional debate and members of the full chamber vote to approve any amendments.
7. Referral of the bill to the other chamber. When the House or Senate passes a bill, it is referred to the other chamber, where it usually follows the same route through committees and finally to the floor.
8. The bill goes to the president. After both the House and Senate have approved a bill in identical form, the bill is sent to the President. If the President approves of the legislation, it is signed and becomes law.
9. Overriding a veto. If the President vetoes a bill, Congress may attempt to override the veto. If both the Senate and the House pass the bill by a two-thirds majority, the President's veto is overruled, and the bill becomes a law.
10. Introduction of Bills. Once a legislator sees a need to introduce legislation, his or her staff will write the legislative language.
11. The Committee Process. Nearly all bills are referred to the appropriate standing committee. ...
12. Floor Action. ...
13. Action in the Second Body. ...
14. Conference Committee. ...
15. Final Action. ...
16. Regulations. ...
17. The president may take no action. If Congress is in session, the bill automatically becomes law after ten days.
18. A pocket veto occurs when the president takes no action and Congress has adjourned its session. ...
19. The president may decide that the bill is unwise or unnecessary and veto the bill.

2. Committee Action. Usually, a committee is assigned to study the bill according to its subject matter. Often a committee will refer the bill to one of its subcommittees.
3. Floor Action. The bill is returned to the full House or Senate for further debate and approval. At this point members may propose amendments to the bill, add additional text, or otherwise alter the bill.
4. Vote. House and Senate members vote on their respective versions of the proposed bill.
5. Conference Committees. A bill must be approved by both Chambers of Congress. When the Senate amends and agrees to a bill or a version of a bill that the House has already passed or when the House amends and passes a Senate bill or a version of a Senate bill, the two Chambers may begin to resolve any legislative differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill by way of a conference committee.
6. Presidential Action. After the bill is passed by both Chambers it is sent to the President for his approval or his signature, which if granted creates a Public Law.
7. The Creation of a Law. The Office of Federal Register assigns the Public Law a number (i.e. P.L. 109-1) and the Government Printing Office prints a copy of it.

1. A bill can only become a law if it is passed by a majority vote in the Senate and the House of Representatives. The bill must be agreed to in identical form by both the Senate and House, and given Royal Assent by the Governor-General. It is then known as an Act of Parliament. An Act specifies the date on which the new law will commence. Often this is the day after it receives Royal Assent. Most bills are introduced into the House of Representatives and then sent to the Senate. Bills may start in the Senate, except for money and taxation bills. Most bills are introduced by government ministers; however, other members of parliament can introduce their own bills, known as private members' or private senators' bills. It may take months or even years for a bill to pass through Parliament. However, an urgent bill can be passed in a matter of hours or days. Well over 100 bills are introduced into Parliament each year and about 90 per cent of government bills are passed into law.
