29 Federal Bills Became Law in 2023

Despite the introduction of more than 11,700 legislative items, only 29 bills of the 118th United States Congress became law in 2023. Though 2023's Congressional output may seem small, the legislative craft behind them reveals a nuanced picture of American democracy in action. Beyond the headlines, patterns emerge.

  • • Urgent issues like trust in government (COVID-19 Origin Act of 2023) and increasing the debt ceiling (Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023) topped the agenda.
  • • Bipartisanship flickered, with bills like the Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act finding common ground.
  • • Public pressure mattered, evident in the Providing Accountability Through Transparency Act of 2023's consumer-driven push.
  • • Servicemembers were recognized by the Korean American VALOR Act, the Wounded Warrior

Access Act, the National Guard and Reservists Debt Relief Extension Act of 2023, and the 250th Anniversary of the United States Marine Corps Commemorative Coin Act.

Here are the 29 federal bills that became law in 2023.
