The life of a House Bill : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This examination of the life of House Bill 1317 will be divided into three chapters. In Chapter One, the inception of and reasons for the legislation will be explored. The second chapter will be arranged into two sections. Part one will outline the legislative process on a general level. Part two will highlight the previously explained process by following House Bill 1317 through each phase of passage. In Chapter Three, I will conclude this thesis by examining the final result of the process, what triggered it, and the fiscal implications that it will have on our state. Together, the chapters will illustrate the life of one bill in our Indiana legislature. In doing so, a larger picture f the legislative process will be provided.
