Doctrines Political Law

How Does A Bill Becomes A Law?

Bills are laws in the making. They pass into law when they are approved by the Congress (which consist of both House of Representatives, and Senate) and the President of the Philippines.

A bill may be vetoed by the President, but the Congress may overturn a presidential veto by garnering a 2/3rds vote from each houses. 

If the President does not act on a proposed law submitted by Congress, it will lapse into law after 30 days of receipt.
