Legislative Processes

  1. Some local politicians propose a bill.
  2. After it’s discussed in committees, local legislators take votes. Majority passes the bill.
  3. The bill is sent to the mayor’s desk. Mayor can sign or veto the bill.
  4. If the mayor signs the bill, it becomes a law effective immediately.
  5. If the mayor vetoes the bill, it’s sent back to the legislature. They can overrule the veto by supermajority votes (two-third of votes).
  6. If anything is failed along the way, the bill is voided.
