Summary

Summary

Following a bill from its assigned committee through its debate on the floor of the House of Representatives, this simulation provides a choice of two bills with background material. Information on how committees learn about the legislation, conduct a markup session, and debate a bill are all included.''''The Government in Action simulation series provides first-hand experience in the workings of government. Each classroom-tested simulation begins with an easy-to-understand description of the particular process and the key players, and then explains how the simulation works and how to research the role to be played. Each book includes background information, primary sources and other material that flesh out the situations and examples for the actual simulations. Library patrons will find an accessible overview of government processes in a format that is not currently available.
