Yes it can. A law needs to be proposed by the House of Commons, then read by the House of Senate. After that happens the governor General gives the royal assent that the bill can become a law.

What happens after the president signs a bill?

When the president signs the bill, it becomes law. If the president refuses, the bill is vetoed, but if a two thirds vote by Congress, it can still become law.


Does a law become a law if the president passes the bill?

Answered by Reid Breitman. This is for information only and you should consult a lawyer before relying on anything on the internet. The president does not pass a bill. That is the domain of the legislature. A bill is drafted and proposed by the legislature, and then they vote on it. If the legislature passes the bill, it is then sent to the President, who can either sign the bill, thus allowing it to become a law, or he or she can veto the bill, thus killing it and sending it back to the legislature. But the legislature can then override the veto by voting again and passing the law by a 2/3rds vote.


Who must agree to a bill before it can become law?

In the United States, when a bill that has been approved by both Houses of Congress, it is sent to the President. Thus a bill can become a law when the President signs it into law.


After a bill has been sent to the president it becomes a law if he does not send it back?

The bill doesn't become law unless the president signs it. When the president receives a bill from Congress he has two options 1) he may veto it; which is to essentially reject it or 2) he can sign it; it then becomes law. If a president ignores a bill that is passed by Congress for 10 days, it passes with or without his signature. There is an exception, the "pocket veto." If a president ignores a bill and Congress adjourns, the bill dies (as if he folded it up and stuck it in his pocket). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_veto

Can a bill become law without a presidential signature?

Yes. If the president vetoes a bill it goes back to the Congress. If both houses of Congress pass the bill again, but this time by a two-thirds majority, then the bill becomes law without the President's signature. Alternately, the President can sit on the bill, taking no action on it at all. If the President takes no action at all, and ten days passes (not including Sundays), the bill becomes law without the President's signature. However, if the Congress has adjourned before the ten days passes and without a Presidential signature, the bill fails. This is known as a pocket veto.
