  Legislation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Legislation (or "statutory law") is law which has been promulgated (or "enacted") by a legislature or other governing body.
Legislation can also be created at provincial and local levels of government (which have their own legislatures), where separation of powers may be less formal and complete.
The record of events and public statements of legislators that explain the reasons for the law and it's expected meaning are called "legislative history".
