Variable v338: Law in second reading

Literal Question

Q.71
When you read the news in a paper that a law passed the Bundestag in the second reading: does that mean they couldn't agree the first time or do all laws have to be read twice or what else does this mean?


1 laws need three readings
the laws have to be read three times - all three times - I believe there have to be several readings, up to three, definitely more than two
2 laws need two readings
all laws have to be read twice - have to be read twice - to give members of parliament the chance to comment on them, they have to be read twice
3 laws need several readings
I believe it needs several readings - the laws are debated several times - no, laws went through several readings - the laws have to be read several times to give the members of parliament time to make objections - the laws need two to three readings
4 couldn't find an agreement
they won't find an agreement - there were ambiguities in the first reading - it didn't pass after the first reading - I guess I had to be altered in the first reading
5 other explanations
one reading can be sufficient - there can be a decision in the first reading - they won't have understood it - that's a routine process which isn't bound to a number
6 don't know, doesn't interest me
