How a Bill Becomes Law
Here's another link to some Q and A and a simplified flow chart:
House Dem Chart
One correction to be made, on the House Dem Q and A, the last Q/A states:
" 9. New Law: The bill becomes law when the Governor signs it. If a bill is vetoed, it can become law if both chambers of the General Assembly vote by two-third majorities to override the Governoršs veto."
As far as I can determine, that is incorrect. The Constitution states that 3/5 (60%) of each house must concur to override the veto. IL Constitution, Article 4, Section 9, paragraph Š.
If anyone knows differently, please let me know ASAP.
The Roman Empire fell due to a large, corrupt government, overspending, an overextended military, insecure borders, and the illegal immigration of Goths, barbarians (anyone who was not educated), and religious fanatics. Sound familiar?
"..it does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
Luke 11:21 - "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are undisturbed." NASB
