Schoolhouse Rock: How a Bill Becomes a Law


Boy: Woof! You sure gotta clamber a lot of steps to get to this Capitol Building here in Washington. But I wonder who that happy little scrap of article is? I’m just a bill.Yes, I’m only a bill.And I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill.Well, it’s a long, long journeyTo the capital city.It’s a long, long waitWhile I’m sitting in committee, But I know I’ll be a law somedayAt least I hope and pray that I will, But today I am still just a statement. Boy: Gee, Bill, you certainly have a lot of persistence and fearlessnes. Bill: Well I went this far. When I started, I wasn’t even a money, I was just an idea. Some tribes back home decided they missed a principle progressed, so they called their neighbourhood Congressman and he read, “You’re right, there oughta has become a law.” Then he sat down and wrote me out and feed me to Congress.

And I became a proposal, and I’ll remain a statement until they decide to draw me a rule. I’m just a billYes I’m only a statute, And I got as far as Capitol Hill.Well , now I’m stuck in committeeAnd I’ll sitting there and wait While a few key Congressmen discuss and debateWhether they are able to let me has become a law.How I hope and pray that they will, But today I am still simply a invoice. Boy: Listen to those congressmen reasoning! Is all that discussion and debate about you? Statement: Yeah, I’m one of the luck ones.

Most invoices never even get this far. I hope they decide to report on me favourably, otherwise I may die. Boy: Die? Bill: Yeah, croak in committee. Oooh, but it consider this to be I’m gonna live! Now I go to the House of Representatives, and they vote on me. Boy: If they elect yes, what happens? Proposal: Then I go to the Senate and the whole occasion starts all over again. Boy: Oh no! Statute: Oh yes! I’m just a billYes, I’m only a billAnd if they vote for me on Capitol HillWell, then I’m off to the White HouseWhere I’ll wait in a lineWith a lot of other billsFor the president to signAnd if he clues me, then I’ll has become a law.How I hope and pray that he will, But today I am still only a bill.

Boy: You signify even if the whole Congress says you should be a law, the president is likely to say no? Bill: Yes, that’s called a veto. If the President vetoes me, I have to go back to Congress and they vote on me again, and by that time you’re so age-old … Boy: By that time it’s very unlikely that you’ll become a statute. It’s not easy to become a law, is it? Bill: No! But how I hope and I pray that I will, But today I am still simply a bill.

Congressman: He ratified you, Statement! Now you’re a law! Statute: Oh yes !!!.
