What is Law New?

Law new is legal news about legislation, court cases, corporate deals, regulatory issues, and other developments in the field. This news is important for anyone in the practice of law.

The process by which a law becomes a statute begins with an idea for policy change. That idea can come from any source, such as a Senator’s constituents or an organization that is calling for change. The idea then is drafted into bill form. Once a bill is drafted, it is assigned to committee for consideration. The staff of the committee then researches, discusses, and makes changes to the bill. The result of this work is a committee report, which sets forth the purpose and scope of the bill and describes what changes were made to existing laws.

After the bill has been voted on and passed by both houses, it is sent to the Governor. The Governor has 10 days to sign or veto the bill. If the Governor signs the bill, it becomes law. If the Governor vetoes the bill, the House and Senate can override the veto with a two-thirds vote in each house.
