New York Laws – What is a Law New?

A law new is a proposed new legislation passed, signed, or vetoed by Congress or another legislative body. The legislation may be a bill, resolution, or statute. When a bill is passed, its committee staff writes a written report that describes the purpose and scope of the bill and why it should be approved or rejected by the house. The report also sets forth the text of existing laws that the bill will change, or repeal, in a section-by-section analysis. The report is a valuable source of information about the law.
