This study presents a comprehensive and inclusive picture of the process by which bills initiated by the executive branch (“Government bills”) are drafted and then approved by the Government and the Knesset. It tracks the drafting process and examines the duration of the legislative process as bills move through the Knesset (plenum and committees). It breaks new ground by describing the interface between the executive and legislature. It concludes with questions for further discussion and research.
