How does a bill become a law?
First, citizens develop an idea for a bill. A
bill is an idea for a law.
Next, members of the House or Senate propose the
bill to other members.
Then, the General Assembly votes to approve the
bill.
IF THE GOVERNOR VETOES THE BILL,
another vote can be taken. If 3/5 of the General
Assembly votes to approve the bill this time, the
bill becomes a law.
After that, the governor signs the bill OR the
governor vetoes the bill.
