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. Before an item of legislation becomes law it may be known as a bill, and may be broadly referred to as "legislation", while it remains under consideration to distinguish it from other business. Legislation can have many purposes: to regulate, to authorize, to outlaw, to provide (funds), to sanction, to grant, to declare or to restrict. It may be contrasted with a non-legislative act which is adopted by an executive or administrative body under the authority of a legislative act or for implementing a legislative act.

  • 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. Before an item of legislation becomes law it may be known as a bill, and may be broadly referred to as "legislation", while it remains under consideration to distinguish it from other business. Legislation can have many purposes: to regulate, to authorize, to outlaw, to provide (funds), to sanction, to grant, to declare or to restrict. It may be contrasted with a non-legislative act which is adopted by an executive or administrative body under the authority of a legislative act or for implementing a legislative act. Under the Westminster system, an item of primary legislation is known as an Act of Parliament after enactment. 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. Most large legislatures enact only a small fraction of the bills proposed in a given session. Whether a given bill will be proposed and is generally a matter of the legislative priorities of government. Legislation is regarded as one of the three main functions of government, which are often distinguished under the doctrine of the separation of powers. Those who have the formal power to create legislation are known as legislators; a judicial branch of government will have the formal power to interpret legislation (see statutory interpretation); the executive branch of government can act only within the powers and limits set by the law.

  • Die Gesetzgebung ist die Schaffung von Rechtsnormen. Ihre Regelung gehört zu den Mindestinhalten jeder Verfassung. (de)
  • Il termine normazione ha, in diritto, due diversi significati. Può infatti designare: * la funzione pubblica consistente nella produzione, attraverso appositi atti giuridici (atti normativi), di norme giuridiche generali e astratte, che vanno a costituire l'ordinamento giuridico (funzione normativa); * il complesso delle norme in tal modo prodotte. In entrambi i significati invece che di normazione si parla spesso di legislazione, termine che designa la produzione di norme (e le norme prodotte) attraverso una specifica fonte del diritto, la legge. Tuttavia negli ordinamenti attuali il termine legge, oltre al significato generale di atto normativo (e di norma giuridica) ha assunto il significato più specifico di atto del potere legislativo (cosiddetta legge in senso formale), sicché parlare di legislazione potrebbe risultare riduttivo ove si consideri che, come si vedrà appresso, in tali ordinamenti funzioni normative vengono svolte anche da altri poteri dello stato. Peraltro, in nessun ordinamento il principio di separazione dei poteri viene applicato in modo così rigoroso da concentrare nel solo potere legislativo la possibilità di emanare norme generali e astratte.
