Every piece of legislation starts with an idea. These ideas can come from a senator, constituents of a senator, State officials, or from any number of other sources. When the idea has been drafted into a bill, it is ready for further consideration. A committee will research and amend the bill. Committee staff write a committee report on the bill that provides an explanation of what each section of the bill is intended to accomplish. This document is often the most useful element of the legislative history of the bill.

A law is an official rule or regulation that governs conduct within a society or country. A law is also known as a statute or act. A law can be signed into law or vetoed by the Governor. A vetoed law cannot be overturned unless two-thirds of each house votes to do so.
