GovTrack Insider, our Kickstarter-backed work to summarize bills in Congress, has resumed. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
An "original bill" is one which is drafted and approved by a committee before it is formally introduced in the House or Senate.
Jun 21, 1973
93rd Congress, 1973–1974
This bill was introduced in a previous session of Congress and was passed by the Senate on July 9, 1973 but was never passed by the House.
Senator from New Hampshire
This is the first step in the legislative process.
Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
The bill was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 2047”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
The committee chair determines whether a bill will move past the committee stage.
