HOW TO PROPOSE A BILL PROJECT:
GETTING YOUR CONCERNS OUT THERE
BIG IDEAS: What is a problem in the state of Florida or right here in Lee County that you would like to change? Lets work together to create a solution.
ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS: 1. What is a bill? 2. How does a bill become a law? 3. What are checks that the legislative and executive branch has on each other in the law making process?
You will be taking on the role of a lobbyist. During these crazy times Florida Legislature is very busy trying to keep us out of another Government shutdown. They have been receiving many petitions and concerns about how things are being run in the state of Florida, especially in areas such as Lee County. You have been chosen to propose a bill dealing with an issue that you feel needs the most addressing. Make sure that your bill is well researched and carefully stated seeing as Florida Legislature is so busy that they are not going to be able to meet with you. Your proposal will be submitted in poster form and due to government shortages; you will be providing a voting box. Please make sure that you advertise your bill well and that there is now question left unanswered, seeing as you will not be there to answer them. Good Luck and let the problem-solving process commence.
