Running head: FEDERAL LAW
The process by which the federal law is passed involves transforming bill in to law. The
first step involves coming up with an idea. Generally, all federal laws start with ideas. Such ideas
can be from anyone provided they have a supportive information. The second step involve
introducing the bill to the house of congress. The federal bill is introduced by the sponsor,
representative or senator. The third step involves moving the bill to the committee whereby
representatives and senators meet to discuss and make changes on the federal bill. During this step,
representatives vote to accept or reject the bill (Bumgarner, 2006).
The fourth step involves debating and voting for the revised federal bill. In this case,
members of the senate debate the bill and come up with respective changes and amendments before
voting. If the majority wins, the bill is passed to the president. The fifth and the last step is referred
to as the presidential action. At this step, the president may decide to approve/pass or reject the
bill. The president weights the usefulness of the bill to his or her nation before approving or
rejecting. If the president us satisfied with the bill, the federal bill is then passed in to law. Among
the issues that arise involve disagreements between the majority and minority representatives. In
most cases, house representatives have varying opinions for the bills presented. To move on, votes
are carried whereby the majority wins (Butler & Ribstein, 2015). The president has the final say
whether to pass or reject a law. Additionally, the president has the power to declare whether the
law passed is constitutional or not.
