Legislation (or "statutory law") is law which has been promulgated (or "enacted") by a legislature or other governing body, or the process of making it. [
It can have many purposes: to regulate, to authorize, to proscribe, to provide (funds), to sanction, to grant, to declare or to restrict.
Legislation is usually proposed by a member of the legislature (e.g. a member of Congress or
Parliament), or by the executive, whereupon it is debated by members of the legislature and is often amended before passage.
