Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 How a Law is Made Bill: a written proposal for a law A legislator can introduce a bill to the state legislator The legislator who is sponsoring the bill presents it to the senate or house. Then, the bill goes to a committee. Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: The bill is reviewed by a committee. If it is approved, it goes to a hearing where anyone can testify against the bill. If the committee doesn't take further action, the bill "dies". Step 4: Law: a system or collection of rules If the bill is sent on, it goes to the rules committee. There, it is assigned a date to be discussed on. The legislators will debate the bill and vote. Step 5: The committee reviews the bill again if the legislators pass it. After leaving the rules committee, it goes for a final vote before going the house or senate. Step 6: If the bill is passed by one of the houses, it goes to the other house, where it goes through the same process. Step 7: Step 8: If the bill is accepted by both houses, it is signed by the leader of each house, then sent to the governor. Citizens can voice their opinion on the bill. The bill is reviewed by the governor. If the governor signs it, the bill becomes a law. If the governor does nothing, the bill will become a law in five to ten days. Step 9: The governor can veto the whole bill or parts of it, but the legislator can cancel or override the veto. To do this, two-thirds of both houses need to agree.
