Laws are official rules that govern behavior within a society or country. They are created by a legislative body like Congress and are often called statutes. When one of these laws is passed, it becomes an official rule that everyone must follow. This article explains the process by which a bill is proposed, debated and voted on to become a law.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul is making lifesaving changes to the state’s drug testing resources with the signing of “Matthew’s Law.” The legislation, named after Matthew Horan, a young man who died from an accidental fentanyl overdose in 2020, will allow local pharmacies and health care providers to distribute fentanyl testing kits to people who may be at risk for overdoses.

When lawmakers write bills to create new laws, they must explain why they believe the legislation is necessary and what impact it will have. The committee staff must also write a report that clearly describes the purpose and scope of each section of the bill. These reports are valuable legal resources for the courts and executive departments and provide important information about the intent of each law. They are an essential part of the legislative process.
