system. Therefore, for the purposes of this assignment you will identify a problem or concern in your
community, organization, etc. that has the capacity to be legislated. You will conduct research and state a
proposal. Through the legislative process, your proposal for the problem or concern may influence an idea for
change into a law.
First, refer to the ”How a Bill Becomes a Law” media. a bill becomes a law v2.1.php
Then, view the ”Bill to Law Process” to watch the scenario.

Submit the assignment to the instructor. You also reserve the right to submit your completed proposal to the
respective government official. However, this is optional. If you select to submit your proposal as a part of the
legislative process, refer to ”Find Your Representative” or research the contact information on your own.
