Parts of a Bill

Work on Your Bill

Each E-Legislator, or team of E-Legislators, is responsible for writing one bill. Bills for E-Congress, just like bills in the real Congress, have several parts. You will complete your bill one piece at a time, though at any time you may edit your earlier work.

Your bill must include each of the parts listed below to be accepted by the Speaker of the House and assigned to a Committee for review.
