Low-Budget Beacon Hill Episode 2: How a Bill Really Becomes a Law

Rep. Maria Robinson and I decided it was time to update the beloved Schoolhouse Rock video and shed some light on how a bill really becomes a law in Massachusetts.

Have you ever wondered why there’s such a rush of legislative activity at certain times of the year? Or why the same exact bill gets filed in both the House and the Senate? Or how that bill ends up looking so differently when it comes out of the House and the Senate, and how those differences between the chambers get resolved?

Lawmaking in Massachusetts is a complex but crucially important process, so we knew we had to cover it in our informational video series, Low-Budget Beacon Hill, explaining the nuts and bolts of how the State Legislature works.

Check out Low-Budget Beacon Hill, Episode 2: How a Bill *Really* Becomes a Law, to learn all this and more. (Unfortunately, there’s no singing in our version.)

Yours in service,
Senator Becca Rausch
