New York Laws

law new

Law new refers to laws that are proposed, debated and passed by Congress or another legislative body. When a bill is finally approved, it becomes an official new rule that citizens must follow. Think of a class project when students propose ideas for a school improvement and then agree on one idea that becomes an official new rule the whole group must follow. Laws that are created by the federal government go through a similar process. The law of a city or state is made up of several levels of law, including constitutional, statutory and regulatory. The law of New York consists of a combination of federal, state and local laws that are periodically codified in the New York Consolidated Laws and case law that is interpreted by courts.
