What is a bill?
A bill is a proposed law that is introduced in Congress. If the bill passes by a simple majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, it goes to the President for his signature. If he signs it, the bill becomes a law. If he vetoes it, the bill does not become a law unless two-thirds of both houses of Congress vote to override his veto.
The process of creating a bill
After a bill is written, it is introduced into Congress by a member of the House or Senate. It goes first to the chamber in which it was introduced and is assigned to a committee. The committee meets to discuss the bill and decides whether or not to send it on to the full House or Senate.
If the committee votes to approve the bill, it is then put on a schedule to be debated by the entire House or Senate. If it passes this vote, it becomes a law. If it does not pass, the bill dies.

Is the bill constitutional?
When a member of Congress proposes a new law, it is called a bill. The bill is then assigned to a committee for study.

Once a bill becomes law, it does not mean that it is constitutional. The U.S. Constitution sets forth principles by which the government operates and limits what laws Congress can pass. When Congress passes a law that does not agree with the Constitution, it is called an unconstitutional law or an unconstitutional act.
