Enact definition

Enact means to establish.
Enact means to make a law.
Enact means “to make into law by authoritative act,” Black’s Law Dictionary 546 (7th ed. 1999); thus every Act of Congress, whether it reflects a never-before considered subject or amends a previously existing statute, is “enacted.” To the extent there could ever be any doubt about whether the Civil Rights Act of 1991 was “an Act of Congress” or whether it was “enacted,” the language of the law itself should set the record straight.
