Learn about how bills become laws in the United States Congress.
Congress is the legislative branch of the federal government. Learn how a bill becomes a law through the process of research, discussion, change and voting. A bill can only be introduced in either the House of Representatives or Senate and is then assigned to a committee whose members will research, discuss and make changes before it is put up for a vote. If the bill passes in one chamber of Congress, it will then go to the other chamber for similar research, discussion and change before it is voted on again.
