Which is more accurate: "The president signed the bill..." or "The president signed the law..."?
This is not a social studies question so I should have clarified what I am looking for. The assumption is that I am referring to a U.S. President signing a bill/law.
Using the past tense signed I am implying this happend in the past. Which means the item in question is currently a law, however at the time of signing it was still a bill.
This is a question about tenses more than anything else.
