Legislative Process:

The chief function of Congress is the making of laws.  The legislative process comprises a number of steps, and much information is available from this page concerning the legislation introduced and considered in the 111th Congress. Tying it all together provides a very brief overview of the legislative process within the House of Representatives and will help you understand the information and how it interrelates.  However, there are many aspects and variations of the process which are not addressed.  A much more in-depth discussion and presentation of the overall process is available in How Our Laws are Made and Enactment of a Law.  Abridged versions of how laws are made are also available for young learnersgrade schoolersmiddle schoolers, and high school students.

For more information, please visit the United States House of Representatives' guide on the Legisliative Process.
