This is a chronological, but still incomplete, list of Allied States federal legislation. At the federal level in the Allied States, legislation (i.e., "statutes" or "statutory law") consists exclusively of acts passed by the Senate of the Allied States and its predecessor, the Congress, that were either signed into law by the President or passed by Senate after a presidential veto. Legislation is not the only source of regulations with the force of law. However, most executive branch regulations must originate in a senatorial grant of power.

Naming

Since 2007, all laws passed by the legislature are officially called Law X of A (X being the number of the law of that year, and A being the year), for example: Law 05 of 2011. However, all laws have a normal name to make it easier to remember, usually designated X Act of Y (X being the name and Y being the year), for example: Safety Act of 2011.
