Written Assignment 2 PortfolioWriting a Congress Bill ProposalThese steps were done to construct Paper 1Select an area of interest. The first step in writing your bill is to select a topic. Write a bill on an area of national politics that you know a little bit about. Like the U.S. Congress, the convention will deal with a broad spectrum of issues: foreign affairs, health and human services, finance, the environment, military affairs, business and commerce.Once you decide an area of interest, read newspaper and magazine articles to get a sense of the current issues being discussed. The Library of Congress offers a database of recently discussed Congressional bills on a website called “Thomas” which can be found at thomas.loc.gov/. The Congressional Research Service (CRS) provides members of Congress with nonpartisan research and analysis of issues. Although these reports are not directly available to the public, some members of Congress have provided access to some of these reports on their websites.Select a specific subject/ problem. The next step is to pick one problem or issue from your general area of interest on which to focus. For example, if you are interested in the war on drugs you may wish to write legislation on drug testing. Or, if you are interested in foreign affairs, you could write legislation to restrict U.S. intervention abroad.These steps will be taken to construct Paper 2Determining the type of Legislation.
