Article I, Section 7, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Origination Clause (OC) because it provides that “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representative.” The meaning and application of this OC has evolved through practice and precedent since the Constitution was drafted. The Constitution does not provide guidelines as to what constitutes a “bill for raising revenue.” This report analyzes congressional and court precedents regarding what constitutes such a bill. Contents: (1) Intro.; (2) The Constitutional Convention and the OC; (3) Interpreting the OC, and Enforcing the OC: House of Rep.; Senate; Supreme Court; (4) Other Legislation and the OC; Appropriation Legislation; Debt Limit Legislation. A print on demand report.
