Resources for Students: How Does a Bill Become Law in Georgia?

With the Georgia General Assembly in session, we will soon be seeing news stories about bills going through the Georgia House of Representatives or the Georgia State Senate. If you would like resources for explaining this process of how a bill becomes law in Georgia to students, here are a few resources for you.

GeorgiaInfo provides a graphic with the steps to pass a law in Georgia, and the New Georgia Encyclopedia provides a more detailed explanation. The Georgia General Assembly also offers an outline on tracking a bill through the General Assembly. To help students learn about the legislative process, GPB Education has provided Five Ways to Introduce Students to the Georgia Legislature.

For more resources, see the State Government section in GALILEO High School.

Please share these with your social studies teachers.

Please Contact Us if you have questions or comments or if you need to report problems.
