President Trump is open to hearing about changes in the way background checks are done in the U.S.. John Cornyn, senator of Texas, has suggested a bill that would hold federal agencies accountable for slacking off in reporting information about potential risks. It would also more closely monitor those with records of domestic abuse. More Republicans are willing to discuss changes in legislation due to the recent school shooting in Florida. This article has bias. They’ll refer to the president as “Mr. Trump” and bring up some of his seemingly contradictory statements. This is a great example of the legislative branch. This bill has been suggested and there are going to be meetings to discuss the bill before any farther steps can be taken. The bill was suggested by four Republicans and four democrats in the senate.
Immigration has been a controversial topic. President Trump’s administration has said he will veto any bill that does not support his visions. Neither party can seem to agree on what steps should been taken when dealing with this issue. The president has a proposal that wants $25 billion dollars in border security in exchange for helping children who were brought to the U.S. illegally. This article seemed to have a little bias. It did not seem to fond of President Trumps proposal, but did share a bit of both sides perspectives of eachother. This article represents how the president has the power to veto a bill he does not like. The eleventh step of the legislative system talks about an executive vetoing a bill. If a bill makes its way through the system and gets to the president and he does not agree he can shut it down.
117 bills were signed by president Trump during his first year in office. This article outlines the laws he signed and what each was about. Most of these bills were extensions of previous laws or trying to undo what was done by the Obama administration. This article seemed biased. The first paragraphs even have clear evidence of bias stating that “few represented major legislative achievements”. In order for the president to sign off on a bill it must make its way all the way through the legislative system. A lot has to happen before it can make it Tim the president and even after that happens there is no guarentee the president will agree with, and sign off on, the bill.
A new bill has been proposed by five democratic Senators. They suggest that, much like farming, if work is not getting done then congress members hours not get paid. This bill would not be able to take place until 2019 due to current legislation. The end the article also mentions the seeming standstill on immigration. This article may have some bias as they talk about how the bill doesnt matter right now and, even if passed, won’t be able to come into effect for another year. This is another bill being suggested. While it won’t come into effect until January of 2019, it has a lot of steps to go through before that is even a possibility. It is in the beginning stages of legislation as its being discussed.
