Answer

In legislative terms, a bill is a proposal for any law.

A bill is a proposed piece of legislation that is being considered by a legislative body. A bill does not become law until it has been passed by both the legislature and, in most cases, the executive. When a bill becomes a law, it is known as an act of the legislature (statute).
