A bit of a detailed process question here regarding the US Congress... If a bill is referred to multiple committees, does it have to pass all of them to move to the floor? Could it die in one committee and therefore it's done? I thought it had to be voted out of all committees of jurisdiction (and then reconciled if they were different versions), but I also remember learning that part of the reason a bill can be sent to multiple committees is to give it more of a "shot at life", as in, even if it dies in one committee, it's not totally dead. Can anyone help me out?
