Any written law passed by a state or federal legislative body can be considered an act of Congress.

When enacted into law, statutes operate as a binding agreement between members of the legislative branch of a state or nation’s government. Statutes, on the other hand, usually impose restrictions or mandates. Legislative bodies enact laws, which are distinct from the precedent set by courts and the guidelines given by government agencies in the form of case law or regulations.
