American Politics Notes: April 8 th , 2008 How a Bill Becomes a Law (Senate) The procedure is essentially the same as in the House. The bill is introduced, multiple referral, sent to multiple subcommittees, five options for the subcommittees, sent back to the larger committee, if the committee passes the bill, it goes to the Senate Leadership, majority party. There is no Rules Committee. The majority Leadership will consult with the minority Leadership. They have to work together much more. They want to create a Unanimous Consent Agreement. It essentially contains three things: they agree on the same three things that the Rules Committee does. The difference is that it must be unanimous. Without objection, the Senate body agrees to the Unanimous Consent Agreement. If a senator stands, by Senate rule, the President Pro- Tem must call on them to speak and a single objection breaks the agreement. All that a single senator has to do is stand up to make a difference.
