LawList: 13th NPC

Legislation Enacted by the 13th National People’s Congress

Notes:

  1. The following list includes legislation that (1) has been enacted by the 13th NPC or its Standing Committee (NPCSC), (2) is currently pending before the 13th NPCSC, and (3) has been tentatively placed on the agenda of the 13th NPCSC (per its 2018 legislative plan).
  2. We will replace the following list with the 13th NPCSC’s five-year legislative plan once it is released later this year.
  3. We have created an individual wiki page for each bill that has been adopted or is still pending. We will do so for planned projects soon. On the wiki pages, “TBR” stands for “to be released,” and votes are listed in the order of “for–abstain–against” (or “for–against” if there were no abstentions.)
