  • How a bill becomes law

    During a single session of Congress, hundreds of bills are enacted into federal law - but the initial legislation proposed by lawmakers in the House and Senate can number well over 10,000 bills per session. With so much proposed legislation flowing through the standard processes, tracking can quickly become difficult.

    This guide breaks down each step of the legislation proposal process in the House and Senate, the steps that can result in changes to legislation before it becomes law, as well as how the two houses resolve legislative differences.

  • The federal budget process

    To receive federal funding, federal agencies must begin developing their budgets 18 months ahead of the next fiscal year. They must also monitor the progress of their requests as they are pushed and pulled through the White House, House of Representatives and Senate.

    The federal budget process is a complex one, and is made more complicated by processes like budget reconciliation. Make sure you know how the federal budget is made so you don't miss a thing.

  • Rules and regulations

    Regulations influence nearly every aspect of daily life, yet most people know very little about the impact of regulations or the process by which regulations are created.

    The regulatory space is notoriously opaque relative to the legislative process. Even so, it has a tremendous impact on the way lobbyists, companies, and regular people operate on a daily basis.
