Nothing much has changed in 2000 years.

In the days of the Romans, scribes were ordered by the Roman Emperor to translate and write things that the Empire wanted to pass as Roman law.

Now { in my opinion } appointed spokespersons who will benefit by the passage of these bills talk into a tape recorder and a modern day scribe/writer writes the portions of the bills that they are directed to write/translate. Then the people in charge who will benefit most, proof read the bill and get the president/emperor to approve what is written, very probably after some changes are made.

Therefore the Emperor/president is the person who takes full responsibility for these bills, because according to our Constitution "ALL" bills are supposed to originate in Congress.

P.S. Roman Emperors were elected in most cases, also.
