A bill is voted on by the part of Congress in which it originated. If it passes by majority vote, it gets sent to the other House for its apporoval. If that part approves it by majority vote, it gets sent to the President for his approval. If he approves it, he signs it and it becomes law.

Someone proposes a bill. Then a committee looks it over to determine if it should become a law. Then the committee votes to send it to the floor. It has to pass both the Senate and the House. Then it is sent to the President. If the President signs, it becomes a law. If not, it is sent back to Congress. If a 3/4 vote approves, it becomes a law even if the President refused to sign it.

A bill becomes a law when the senator and judicial branch go over the bill. if it gets the required amount of votes in congress the president will either veto the bill or make the bill a new law

Another View: ABOVE ANSWER IS INCOORECT (in the US) There is no collaboration between the Legislative and Judicial Branches prior to a Bill being passed by Congress. If/when the Bill is passed by both houses of Congress it is sent to the President who may sign it into law. ONLY WHEN IT BECOMES A LAW can the Judicial Branch rule on its Constitutionality - and then - only after it is appealed completely through the lower courts before it reaches them.

How is the path a bill takes to become a law similar in a state legislature and the national Congress?

Many states modeled their own governments after the federal example, so the path a bill takes in order to become law is similar at the state and national levels. Bills are proposed and voted on by both Houses of Congress and are sent to the President at the federal level or the Governor at the state level to be signed if they are passed by both houses. They are then either signed into law or vetoed.
