The Legislature Branch
By: India, Amanda, Hunter, Tj V.
Hello, my name is Bill
I'm going to tell you all about..
The Legislative Branch!
Here's how it all started..
I think we should make a law that consists of ..
Keeping a wild animal, that would be fun..
Maybe we should make a law that you can keep a pet..
The idea is like an Ex Post Facto Law which is;
A law that would allow a person to be punished for an action
that was against a law...
It's not that bad to be honest...Hm..
From my research..
Only a member of congress can be a bill's sponsor...
that brings us to our next step!
Next a bill clerk assigns a bill a number, and then a bill is referred tothe proper committee.
That sounds great.
I just hope there a seniority, with years of service which is used as a consideration for assigning committee members.
We should send it to a standing committee: which is a permanent committee that continues work from session to session in its congress.
If the committee agree's that the bill is ready ...
It's favorably reported and included on the House Calender
