List of bills in the 114th United States Congress

The bills of the 114th United States Congress list includes proposed federal laws that were introduced in the 114th United States Congress. This Congress will last from January 3, 2015 to January 3, 2017.

The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two houses: the lower house known as the House of Representatives and the upper house known as the Senate. The House and Senate are equal partners in the legislative process—legislation cannot be enacted without the consent of both chambers. The bills listed below are arranged on the basis of which chamber they were first introduced in, and then chronologically by date.

Once a bill is approved by one house, it is sent to the other which may pass, reject, or amend it. For the bill to become law, both houses must agree to identical versions of the bill. After passage by both houses, a bill is enrolled and sent to the president for signature or veto. Bills from the 114th Congress that have successfully completed this process become public laws, listed as Acts of the 114th United States Congress.
