Most individuals with a general background knowledge of the United States Federal Government system are aware that in order for a bill to become a law, it must first pass a majority vote in Congress. There is, however, a very important step in the legislative process that sometimes goes unnoticed. The committee system of the legislation process ensures that the appropriate attention is given to each bill introduced to Congress. Each member of both chambers are assigned to committees and subcommittees, and are expected to become subject matter experts in their respective roles as committee members.
An important point made in Weissert and Weissert concerning Congress and its committee structure is that the majority of the work in Congress is done through committees. They perform the majority of research on issues and possible solutions, get legislation written, re-written and amended, and support it as it moves through Congress and finally gets passed. They are the “workhorses of the legislature” (Weissert and Weissert, 29).

There are several steps in passing legislation and many areas where a bill could fail. Associations and lobbyist are often involved in drafting legislation. They are also involved in lobbying members. The bill is then sent to a specific committee for the first review where either changes or made or the bill is rejected. If a bill is accepted, it is sent out from the committee to full House or Senate vote. If it passes, it will go to the opposite side of the legislative branch for a second vote. The bill most be voted on in the same way in both chambers in order to be passed. If a bill passes both the Senate and the House of Representatives, it goes to the President to be signed and made a law. If the President veto’s the bill, a two-thirds majority can override the president and make the bill a law without him or her. Every bill has a two -year deadline to either pass or die by default. The speaker of the House of Representative is in charge of the agenda for the House to vote on.

Members of Congress are charged with three primary duties—writing laws, overseeing the implementation of laws, and serving the needs of their constituents.

Technology has open the possibility for new advancements and creations in the world. In medicine, for example, technology has helped increase lifespan, improved our life conditions and reduce the risk of harmful diseases. However, for some patients, technology has also been accompanied with prolonged suffering and with devastating physical and medical expenses. With more people connected today to CPR machines during their time of deaths, many individuals are having a harder time to achieve a “death with dignity”, in part because technology is disrupting both the quality of living of patients and the control they have over their own bodies.
