WEEKLY CLUB MEETING: DIANNA GRAVES ON HOW A BILL BECOMES A LAW

Diana Graves
  • March 27 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 pm

HOW A BILL BECOMES (OR DOESN’T BECOME) LAW

BACKGROUND – 3 GROUPS OF ELECTED CITIZENS: 100 HOUSE, 34 SENATE, & GOVERNOR

TO BECOME LAW, A BILL MUST PASS BOTH HOUSES & AVOID GOVERNOR VETO

HUNDREDS AND OFTEN THOUSANDS OF BILLS ARE INTRODUCED. MANY DIE.

ANYONE CAN PROPOSE A BILL (CITIZEN, GROUP, BUSINESS) BUT IT MUST BE SPONSORED BY A LEGISLATOR TO BE INTRODUCED. CAN BE DRAFTED BY CITIZEN, LEGISLATOR WHO WILL SPONSOR, OR GO THROUGH LEGISLATIVE SERVICES WHERE COUNSEL WHO WORK FOR STATE WILL DRAFT. IT MUST BE BLENDED INTO THE APPROPRIATE SECTION OF CODE.

Join us to hear the whole talk! 


Dianna’s Bio:

Graduated from Stanford University, BA in Political Science, Minor in International Environmental Law & Policy
Work at Arnett Carbis Toothman (here’s their website if you want anything about them, big regional firm with offices in PA, OH, and multiple WV locations https://www.actcpas.com/)
 
I’m an auditor — specializing in employee benefit plans and oil & gas entity audits. I have 6 years’ experience auditing – I did tax return preparation before that. I’ve been in love with the same WV boy since I graduated from college — we’ve been together 13 years now.  🙂
 
I’ve helped with Patrick Morrisey’s campaigns since his first in the State, was a volunteer for Bill Maloney, Bill Cole, and now with the AGs Senate race.   I was appointed by the Governor on Sept 29, to replace Nancy Reagan Foster and I have served in the legislature through both special and regular sessions now.
