What is a Law New?

A law new is legislation that has been proposed, debated, and passed by Congress or another legislative body. The result is an official rule or regulation that governs behavior within a country or society.

The process of creating a law starts with a policy idea, which can come from any number of sources. The idea may be from a senator’s constituents, an organization calling for a change, or a State official. Eventually, the idea becomes a bill, and it is then put before either the Senate or House of Representatives. Once a bill has been introduced, it can be assigned to committees where members will research the issue and make changes to the text of the bill. If the bill passes through both houses, it will become a law.

If the Governor has a problem with a bill, he or she can veto it. A vetoed bill remains a law only if two-thirds of both houses vote to override the Governor’s veto.

Laws can cover many different issues, but they usually fall into one of two categories: land and personal property. Land law (also called real property law) deals with ownership of land and things attached to it, while personal property laws (also known as intellectual property or corporate law) deal with the possession and use of movable objects, such as cars, computers, or jewelry.

The process of drafting laws requires specialized legal training. Often, the drafters are members of either the Senate or House of Representatives or staff from State agencies. However, interested citizens can also submit policy ideas for consideration as bills.
