Bipartisan is a term which denotes support by members of the two major political parties (the Democrats and the Republicans). In a two-party system, it refers to any bill, act, resolution, or any other action of a political body in which both of the major political parties are in agreement. Often, compromises are called bipartisan if they reconcile the desires of both parties from an original version of legislation or other proposal.
Bipartisanship can also be between two or more opposite groups to agree and determine a plan of action on an urgent matter that is of great importance to their voters.
