A '''bill''' is the principal vehicle employed by lawmakers for introducing their proposals (enacting or repealing laws, for example).
In the [[United States Senate]], bills are designated S. 1, S. 2, and so on depending on the order in which they are introduced. They address either matters of general interest ("[[public law|public bills]]") or narrow interest ("[[private law|private bills]]"), such as immigration cases and individual claims against the Federal government.<ref>[
