Legislation, also known as Acts, are the written documents that form the primary business of the Assembly. All pieces of Legislation require the sponsorship of at least two representatives. There are three types of legislation: Bills, Policies, and Resolutions. A Bill is any legislation that may contain spending provisions and does not fit the criteria of a Policy or Resolution. A Policy is any legislation that establishes rules internal and within the authority of UPUA that may contain spending provisions. A Resolution is any legislation that deals with rendering an opinion. Bills & Resolutions require a majority of those present and voting to pass while Policies require two-thirds (2/3rds) vote of those present and voting to pass.
