Can someone please explain to me what a legislation is. I have looked at numerous websites, and I am very confused.
Is it a law that has been passed? Or are there different types of legislation.
Can you give me an example of a legislation?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help forum. When you encounter a word that you don't understand, never forget a good dictionary!
Main Entry: leg·is·la·tion
Date: circa 1655
1 : the action of legislating; specifically : the exercise of the power and function of making rules (as laws) that have the force of authority by virtue of their promulgation by an official organ of a state or other organization
2 : the enactments of a legislator or a legislative body
3 : a matter of business for or under consideration by a legislative body
I know what the dictionary says, but there are different types of legislation, correct? I need to identify a type of legislation linked to a Native American issue, and I do not understand. WOuld it be the name of the bill that was passed?
Thank you for clarifying further. Here are some sites:
