What is Law New?

Law new refers to laws passed or enacted by Congress or another legislative body. It also refers to official rules or regulations that govern behavior within a society or country, like a school’s dress code. A new rule is proposed, debated, and approved by a group of people who then agree on one idea that becomes the new law. The law can be written down in a formal document, called a statute or law. The new law may be applied to everyone or only to some people. The law is usually enforced by an official, called a police officer or prosecutor.

The law changes throughout the course of the legislative process, as it is voted on and amended by members of Congress or other legislators. A draft of a proposed law is known as a bill. The bill is typically introduced by a legislator, who is sometimes joined by other legislators, who are known as cosponsors. The bill is then referred to various committees, which review the draft’s language and possible changes. Ultimately, the bill may be voted on by the whole Senate or House of Representatives and approved or rejected as a statute.
