How a Bill becomes a Law

In a 5-6 page paper, describe how a bill becomes a law. Please include references to back up your statements. All steps in the legislative process should be discussed and explained.

In applying how a bill becomes a law, research the Stolen Valor Act and identify all of the steps in the legislative process for the passing of this particular law. Note that the current law was not the first proposed bill before it was finally signed into law in 2013. Make sure that you compare the different versions of the bill that were presented to the House and Senate and explain why it died in the Senate, and how it was finally passed and signed into law.

Your analysis should also include the intention behind the bill, the success of the final bill, and how the goals of the initial proponents were impacted by the political process.
