Shortly explains the point of a bill within a sentence starting with the above title, “AN ACT TO.”
SECTION 1: SHORT TITLE
This section will be the title of your bill and should range from 2-8 words.
SECTION 2: PURPOSE
This section of a bill explains the problem your bill is addressing. Here you will use data and facts as evidence to support the need of the bill. This section does not need to contain all of the material gathered about the issue but should contain the most important and substantial information.
SECTION 3: DEFINITIONS
(Optional) This section defines any words or abbreviations that are used in a bill that other delegates may not be aware of. Examples of possible definitions may include types of taxes, current laws or acts, or terms that are not used regularly.
SECTION 4: MAIN PROVISIONS
This section is the main area of the bill and is where the author(s) outline every guideline and procedure that will go into effect if the bill is passed. Because this is the section where you are creating, changing, or removing a law, it should be the most thought-out and thorough section of your bill.

SECTION 6: PENALTY CLAUSE
This section will specify the repercussions of individuals, businesses, or companies if the guidelines of the main provisions are not followed.
SECTION 7: EFFECTIVE DATE
This section identifies when the bill will go into effect if it passes First Committee, Senate, House, and the Governor signs it into law.
