What’s New

A law is a set of official rules and regulations that governs behavior in a community or country. Laws are created and passed by Congress or another legislative body known as a legislature. A bill is a proposal for a law that can either be a completely new law or a change to an existing law. When a committee approves a bill for consideration by the House or Senate, that bill is then written into a “committee report”. The committee report is an important part of the legislative history of a law and provides the courts, executive departments, and the public with a full record of its legislative origins.
