Are we abolishing the EPA? I heard about this one bill...
Bills to Terminate the EPA, end the Department of Educaiton, and remove the United States from the United Nations have all been introduced in the House of Representatives. Each has caught the spotlight of the media and created fervor on line. But are any of these bills going to become law? No. So why introduce them? In this episode, we revisit that old civics lesson, How A Bill Becomes A Law (in a bit more detail than Schoolhouse Rock), and explore why someone would introduce a bill that is Dead-on-Arrival. It's a bit dense, a bit long, but understanding what happens in congress is crucial for all Americans.
