What will the process be for the Senate’s Immmigration Bill?
Most bills in Congress are given a only few days of consideration before they’re brought to a vote and sometimes even less. This legislation received multiple public hearings after its introductions. After weeks of public review, the legislation underwent the first round of amendments in the Judiciary Committee in May. AFter weeks of debate the bill was amended and approved. In June it was considered and approved by the entire Senate. It now has to go through the same process in the House of Representatives. Should a bill be approved by the House of Representatives, A commmittee made up of Senators and Members of the House will need to conform the two bills into a third bill which well then be presented to the full Senate and House of Representative for approval. Only after being approved by both Houses of Congress will a bill be presented to the President for his signature.
