What is the difference between a bill and a law?

Question asked by: knowitall

A bill is something that is proposed to become law but is not law itself.

A bill must be voted on to become law, so a bill is effectively a prototype for a law, whereas a law is something that has been agreed and become constititional as a rule that must be enforced.
