Instructional Process

  • Type "entrepreneurship" or key words related to entrepreneurship in the search bar.
  • On the wiki page, record the bill number "S. 1137", the bill title "PATENT Act", and prognosis "36% chance of being enacted".
  • If there is "See Instead" under the prognosis indication, there is another bill with this same title introduced to Congress. The two bills contain the same content (for the several bills I have checked). Record the prognosis of the related bill.
  • On the bill overview page, under the "A Bill/"An Act" tab, there should be an option to view the summary of the bill. Read over the summary and interpret a high level conclusion onto the wikipedia page.
