1. Introduction of Bills. Once a legislator sees a need to introduce legislation, his or her staff will write the legislative language. In the House, the bill is distributed to the Clerk of the House.
2. The Committee Process. Nearly all bills are referred to the appropriate standing committee. Bills relating to charitable deductions and the oversight of charitable organizations are usually sent to the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees.
3. Floor Action. Once a bill has been reported out from committee, it must be placed on a legislative calendar in order to receive consideration by the full body (either House or Senate).
4. Action in the Second Body. Once a bill is approved by one body, it is sent to the other chamber. The second body can pass the bill as it stands, reject the bill, or send it through its own legislative process.
5. Conference Committee. At a conference committee, senior members of the House and Senate work out the differences between two different versions of the same bill.
6. Final Action. Once a bill has been passed by the House and Senate in identical form, an enrolled bill is prepared in the chamber in which the legislation was first introduced.
7. Regulations. While not officially part of the legislative process, the development of regulations is a critical step in the creation of public policy that is often overlooked.

1. Way back in 1976, the television show Schoolhouse Rock! aired a segment that featured a catchy song about the legislative process dubbed “I’m Just a Bill.” The short animated show taught kids how a bill becomes a law on Capitol Hill. It explains how representatives take ideas from their constituents, write a bill, and introduce it. Lawmakers decide where it will go during a committee meeting, and then Congress votes on it; if approved, it will go to the president’s desk. If he signs the bill it becomes a law. Of course, that’s a simplified version of the process. Ordinarily, it’s very complicated.

1. Someone comes up with an idea. This idea is then written up in the form of legislation and has to be introduced by one or more members of Congress. Every year, Congress passes bills to take care of the funding of the basic functions of government.
2. The bill is assigned to a committee. The committee assignment is based on the subject of the bill itself. The committee then takes a hard look at the language and the legislative intent of the bill.
3. The bill may be assigned to a subcommittee. Often, before a committee will look at a bill, they give it over to a more specific subcommittee for their review and input.
4. The bill goes through a “markup.” This can be done at the committee or subcommittee level as well. This is the process by which members of Congress make changes to a bill.
5. The bill is reported. If a bill gets its hearings and markups and is passed out of the subcommittee and committee it is “reported.” This means the bill now gets a chance to get to the floor of the House or the Senate.
6. The other chamber needs to act. There are times when a similar copy of a bill will already be on its way to the floor of the other chamber so this step is skipped.
7. The two sides meet. If you have a bill, or now two bills, that have made their way through the long, winding road of the committee process in both chambers of Congress, the differences between the Senate and House versions need to be hammered out.
8. Both sides vote on the conference report. Once the conference committee has one bill, the House and the Senate get a chance to approve it or reject it.
9. The president gets to weigh in. After the conference report is passed by the House and Senate, the bill heads up Pennsylvania Avenue to the president’s desk where it will be signed or vetoed.

1. Submitting a Bill. Bills originate from several different sources, but primarily from individual members of Congress. In addition, bills might be brought to a member by a constituent or by a group of constituents; a bill can be submitted to a member of Congress by one or more state legislatures; or the President or his administration might suggest a bill.
2. Committees. Both houses of Congress, the House and the Senate, are divided into large groups called Committees, with most committees divided yet again into Subcommittees.
3. House Procedure. In the House, a bill approved by a committee is referred to the whole House. Most are then referred to the so-called Committee of the Whole, which consists of all members of the House, but with a much lower quorum requirement.
4. Senate Procedure. After a Senate committee refers a bill to the full Senate, it can take one of two main roads. In some cases, with emergency or other non-controversial bills, a simple voice vote is taken of the Senate, and the bill either passes or fails.
5. Conference. Once a bill leaves the House and the Senate, it must be checked. If anything in the two versions of the bill differ, in any way (even in something as minor as punctuation), the bill must be reconciled.
6. On to the President. Regardless of how it leaves the Congress, once it does, it goes to the President for his signature. Note that the legislative process does not operate in a vacuum, and the President, or his staff, has been tracking bills that pass the Congress.
7. The Bill Becomes Law. Officially, after the President signs the bill, 10 days passes without a signature, or after a veto override, the bill is considered law.
