Someone tells their idea to a legislatorthe bill waits in the docket until introduced to the house of reps or the senatethe bill is assigned a number and is sent to a special committee and they revise it, and sometimes they send it to a smaller committeethe committee chooses a day for congress to hear the bill if it is good enoughit is revised and make necessary changesthe house of reps will either reject or approve the bill, and then the senate does the sameonce it is approved by both, then it becomes enrollitized and is for some reason sent to the white house for the president to look overthe prezident can either sign the bill into a law or veto (reject) itcongress can override a presidents veto, though. if congress does decide to do so, 2/3 of congress (somewhere around 360; there are 538 members of congress [435 house members and 100 senators]) must approve of this.if 2/3 of congress agrees, then the bill is a law!!!
