FC: How Laws are Made | By: John Maynie

1: "Hey Henry what brings you to Washington D.C.?" said Bill. "Well Bill, my family and I are on vacation, And I thought I could learn something on this trip." said Henry. "Well, let me teach you a little something about how laws are made in the U.S." said Bill.

2: First an idea sparks in someones brain, and the bill is born.......

3: Once the new born bill is thought up, then the baby bill will be proposed by only a member of congress no one else.......

4: Then the bill is chosen out of the hopper, labeled and presented in front of the proper committee, It goes to a subcommitee for specialized analysis also if needed.

5: Once the proper Committee thinks the bill is ready it is moved on and reported on the house calendar.....

6: Now the matured bill is carefully considered on the House floor and more amendments may be made. "Wow, thats a lot of people for one bill." said Henry. "Bills are taken very serious after approved by the committee, can never be too safe." said Bill.

7: Then members of congress must vote on the bill, saying yes, no, or present.

8: If bill is passed in the House it goes through a similar situation in the Senate......

9: And If the bill passes through the Senate it goes to the White House behind us to see the President of the United States to be made law or be a veto and sent back to the drawing boards.

10: Or the House of Congress can Override the veto and Make it into law if not agreed by president.

11: "Thats how a law is made, Henry." says Bill. "Thanks I can tell my parents how a law is made now, I bet they don't even know." says Henry laughing. "Anytime, make sure you go see the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, you will learn even more about the history of the U.S." says Bill. "ok thanks again, bye Bill." says Henry. "Bye bye Henry." says Bill.
