Ever wonder how a bill becomes a law in Illinois?

1. Every law starts with an idea.
2. A legislator can turn an idea into a bill.
3. A bill can start in either the House or the Senate.
4. Once the bill is introduced, it is assigned to a committee.
5. A small group of legislators meet to talk about the details of a bill and vote on it.
6. If passed, the bill will be read to the first house a second time.
a. The bill may be changed or amended throughout this process.
b. It can also be tabled or even thrown out.
7. It is then read a third time and voted on.
a. If it passes, the bill moves to the second house.
8. The bill is reintroduced in the second house and assigned to a committee. They follow the same steps in reading, amending, and voting on the bill.
9. If a bill is read a third time in the second house and passes, it can be sent to the Governor to sign if there werenโ€™t any changes.
a. If the second house amended the bill, the first house would have to approve those changes.
10. The Governor can approve or veto the bill. If he approves, it becomes a law. If he vetoes, or says no, congress may vote to override the Governor.
