agenda” (Krutz & Waskiewicz, 2017, p. 125). The bill would then be referred to the proper committee, and failure to act on the bill would be equivalent to killing it. The bill would then have to be voted on, and if the committee decides not to allow the bill to advance it would be tabled (Krutz & Waskiewicz, 2017, p. 125). “If the committee decides to advance the bill,…it is printed and goes to the chamber, either the House or the Senate” (Krutz & Waskiewicz, 2017, p. 125). If a majority votes to allow the bill to advance, then it moves on. Once the bill goes to the Senate, it is placed on a calendar to be amended and debated on. The bill would then go to the President to sign or veto. “If the President does veto the bill, both chambers must muster a two-thirds vote to overcome the veto and force the president to sign it. If the two-thirds threshold in each chamber cannot be reached, the bill dies” (Krutz & Waskiewicz, 2017, p. 125). 4
