E-Learning Module: The Dynamic Legislative Process

Lesson Duration

By the Center on Congress at Indiana University

“The typical textbook description of the legislative process, though technically valid in some respects, is woefully inadequate in describing the fascinating, vibrant, often “messy” reality of how a bill becomes law. This module allows you to compare the typical textbook process with the more realistic “dynamic” process, and you will see how our untidy process has produced solid results.”
