How a Bill Becomes a Law

THE PEOPLE


Developing Grassroots
Spreading the news of our cause, increasing membership which brings a greater awareness of our cause to legislators.
 
  Sunrise Evaluation Report
25 extensive questions that validate that a profession is worth being regulated.  Completed in 2004 by IDLCPA.
Informing Legislators
Make them aware of our cause, ask for support, and refute what the opposition is saying.
 
  Write a Bill
With the help of a lobbyist, a fair and detailed bill is drafted.  It is up to us to contact our legislators to educate them on our profession and ask for support.


THE GOVERNMENT


House of Representatives   
  1. Get a Prime Sponsor from the House.  Sponsor gets co-sponsors (aka bill supporters).  Bill introduced to the House where the Professional Licensure Committee reviews and votes on it.


  2. If it passes, then it goes to the Appropriations Committee who review and vote on it.


  3. If it passes, then it goes to the entire House for a vote.
Senate
  1. Goes through the same steps as above.  Prime Sponsors...Co-Sponsors...reviewed by the Consumer Protection & Professional Licensure Committee, voted on.


  2. If it passes, then it goes to the Appropriations Committee for further review and vote.


  3. If it passes, then it goes to the full Senate. If it passes, then it goes to the Governor and if the Governor pass it then it becomes a law.
If the Governor does not sign the bill within the 2 year term, then you have to start all over again next term!
