Legislation or is the process or act or process of making laws. Legislative law is the law
that has been enacted by the legislature and describes the legal requirements, as well as the
punishments that are given when the laws are violated (Babanina, 2018). The legislation
covers several parts and aspects of the society, for example, land, animal and human
rights, use of public property, et cetera (Aleksynska, 2016). Legislation can be in the form
of bills, joint resolutions, simple resolutions, and concurrent resolutions, where bills are
the most common (Davis, 2016). Bills vary and can be public or private, general or special,
permanent or temporary (Finkelman, 2020). Considering whether the bill is private or
public, it affects all the citizens (or the public) if it is public. However, a private bill only
affects a specified individual, organization, or private party (Finkelman, 2020). Joint,
concurrent, and simple resolutions are the other types of legislation. They all have different
purposes, such as protecting the rights of the citizens and other emerging issues that either
the Senate or House of Representatives need to address (Belew, 2019). A bill is only passed
and becomes law if two-thirds of the votes are for it, and the president approves the bill.
However, the joint resolution does not need presidential approval so long as two-thirds of
the members of both houses approve the bill (Parliament, 2016). This journal discusses the
importance of legislation and legislative laws in the modern era.
