New York Laws – What is the Law New?

The law new is an official rule that governs behavior within a society or country. It is the result of many ideas that are proposed, debated and voted on. When a legislative body agrees on one idea, it becomes an official written law known as a statute. Laws are generally drafted as bills. Those who draft laws are usually members of Congress or other legislative bodies, but they may also be public officials, State agencies, or private individuals or organizations. In New York, committees of two or more people who conduct public business or perform governmental functions are subject to the Open Meetings Law and must draft their bills in accordance with that law. Once a bill is drafted, it must be approved by the Senate and the House before becoming a statute. Once the legislation passes both houses, it is sent to the Governor for approval or disapproval. The Governor has 10 days to sign or veto the legislation before it becomes law.
