Bills

Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island

A Bill is part of the legislative process of the Legislative Assembly. It is a policy proposal put forward to become law. In order for a Bill to become law it must follow the process of being introduced (read), examined, debated, and voted on. Once the bill is approved by the Legislative Assembly, it is presented to the Lieutenant-Governor of Prince Edward Island to give the bill Royal Assent on behalf of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Once the Bill is given Royal Assent, it becomes law. This page presents Bills that have been submitted by the Official Opposition of Prince Edward Island.
