Legislation is a main function of government that deals with creating laws for a variety of purposes. Legislators are government officials that develop and pass laws and statues at the local, state, and federal levels. Legislators usually need at least a bachelor degree. Legislators must also meet age, residency, and citizenship requirements. Voters usually elect legislators and many participate in community service to gain local support. Employment of legislators is expected to experience little or no change from 2006 to 2016.
