Best Answer

Thhousands of bills are introduced to Congress each year, but only a small percentage actually become law. One statistic found 13,882 pieces of legislation started the process, with only 354 making it all the way through to becoming law. That is only 2.5%. So the likelyhood of a bill completing its journey is very slim.
