Follow a Bill!

Hi, I'm Bill from Burlingame and I'll be taking you on a trip through the California Legislature. The State Legislature represents the people and makes laws for the entire State of California.

The State Legislature is made up of two houses, called the Assembly and the Senate. Ideas, which are called bills, must first be passed by the Assembly and the Senate. Then the Governor has to approve them to become laws. If the Governor does not approve a bill, it can still become law, but only if both the Assembly and the Senate pass it again with a lot of votes (two-thirds of the members in each house).
