Found inLembke, M.B. Cataloging legal literature, 1997: glossary, under Laws ("legislation" is used synonymously for "laws," legislation or laws being the end product of the legislative process engaged in by legislatures. "Acts" or "legislative enactments" are the written documents by which a legislative body promulgates laws. The word "statutes" is often used interchangeably for "acts" or "laws." Those laws promulgated by persons with legislative authority are decree laws.)
