This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentation on Florida State Government & How a Bill Becomes a Law. The total number of slides in the presentations is 50. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
This presentation covers how the states are governed, using the State of Florida as a model. It covers each of the three branches of state government and how they are like the federal government. There is a sizable portion of the presentation dedicated to the process of how a bill becomes a law. But I have broken it out in more animated detail in the second presentation so it can be used as a “stand alone” presentation.
The presentation also covers the authority for “general purposes” for local governments: Counties & Cities and “special purpose” for local governments: School Districts & Special Districts.
This presentation is easily modifiable to fit any state government presentation.
Power point presentation #1 is entitled, State & Local Government – Florida and contains 36 slides and covers the following:
The Executive Branch (4 slides)
The Legislative Branch (4 slides)
How a “Bill” Becomes a “Law” (10 slides)

End of Presentation
The second presentation covers an expanded presentation on “How a Bill Becomes a Law.” It can be adapted to fit any presentation on how a law is created on the federal or state level.
Laws are created by Congress, the Legislative Branch, of both the federal and state governments. Congress consists of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, both chosen by citizen elections.
Before a law can be enacted it starts as a “bill” in either the federal or state houses of congress. Congress proposes legislation in the forms of “bills” drafted by a nonpartisan, professional staff.
Power point presentation #2 is entitled, State & Local Government – How a Bill Becomes a Law and contains 14 slides and covers the following:
The Bill Committee
The Approval Process
If a Bill Fails
If a Bill Passes
Once Bills are Passed
The Final Approval
