The Louisiana Purchase Treaty 

There are different ways that Congress make laws but the most common way is: the bill is drafted, the bill is introduced, the bill goes to committee, subcommittee reviews the bill, committee markup of the bill, voting by the fuller chamber of the bill, referral of the bill to the other chamber, the bill goes to the president, overriding a veto. Congress plays a major role in the making of law. Initially congress made the rules that the people currently abide by, they are the voice of the people and make sure that their voice gets heard. With the limited knowledge I have on making law I would say that there should be a position that is much more personable to the people. I have seen time and time again bills getting passed back and forth with no progress being made. Some of the bills that are mismanaged are important to many people more specifically important to your normal contributing member of society.
