This is a generalized overview of how our legislative process is supposed to work.  Note that each state and/or chamber has their own arcane rules and traditions that influence the process.   

What is difficult to document is how and when our representatives work together (or not) to make bills a reality, whether formally in committee or informally (sometimes with lobbyists or donors) away from the capital. 


One of IKC's main goals is to hold our elected representatives accountable to the people they serve, in terms of introducing, co-sponsoring, voting and funding progressive legislation.
