HOW IT WORKS

* The draft of a proposed law submitted to Congress for enactment is called a bill. The usual form of introduction of a bill is by a member of either the Senate or House of Representatives laying it on the clerk's table. Such bills are either drafted by the Congressman himself, or he adopts a draft furnished him by someone. Sometimes bills are drafted by a committee, as when communications addressed to either house by an executive department or other source are referred to committees to originate the necessary bill.
