it means to ignore the bill and let it die, is what my Social Studies book says word for word

Pigeonholed means to put something away until a proper time. A bill that is being considered towards a new law might get pigeonholed if the current Congress does not want to deal with the issue. The bill could stay pigeonholed for a long time.

A pigeonholed bill is one that has been ignored by a congressional comittee and has therfore died before being signed into law.

Pigeonholed (of people or things) filed in the appropriate category or compartment (like the pigeonholes in a desk), often with the sense of being dealt with and forgotten; shelved.Above retrieved from Answers.comViper1
