1.In the United States policy making originates from several sources such as public opinion, the President, and special interest groups. The first step, policy formulation begins with the federal government. “Policy formulation refers to the selection of a health problem as a policy target” (Shi, 2014). An example of a policy target could be something to do with the size and function of infant car seats. Once a health target has been introduced to Congress it then goes through the normal process a law goes through to be passed. If Congress passes the bill, and then the President signs it, it then becomes a law.
