Tracking a bill can keep a member of Congress accountable. When important pieces of legislation are introduced (like colon cancer legislation), the next step as an advocate is to monitor the process of a bill as it goes through the key steps to becoming a law.

When tracking a bill, look for:

  • Any changes to the bill
  • Where it is in the legislative process
  • What its potential impact will be
