If both chambers do not agree on the bill then it is sent to a committee with members from both to try and figure out what changes to make to it.

Step 5: Approval of the conference report

After conference both the House and Senate must aprove the conference report, if they don't the bill dies. If they both approve it then it gets passed to the president.
