How Our Laws Are Made
Congress is the lawmaking branch of the United States government. Learn how a bill becomes a law, including the process in the House of Representatives and Senate. Search by name, keywords, congressional session, or type of legislation to find bills and laws. You can also find information about impeachment, and get copies of your federal files and copyrighted government creative works.
A variety of new laws are taking effect in the new year, including “Matthew’s Law,” which allows pharmacists to give out fentanyl and other drug adulterant test supplies to prevent overdoses. Another law will increase the minimum wage in New York City, Westchester and Long Island to $16 an hour. And a bill named after a young college student killed by bias-related hate crime, will protect students from such offenses.
While these are just a few of the many changes taking place, there is much more to read about on the New York State Legislature’s Bills and Laws page and the NY Office of the Governor’s Pressroom site. New York State law consists of constitutional, statutory and regulatory law and includes local laws, ordinances and regulations. In addition, case law and administrative law have great influence on the law. The state has several levels of government: the legislature, the executive branch and the courts. The Constitution, statutes and rules (also called regulations) form the consolidated law of the state. Local laws, ordinances and regulations, also known as municipal law, have more local control.
