Revenue Bill Law and Legal Definition

A revenue bill focuses on methods for raising money, e.g. taxes, user fees, customs duties, and tariffs. Under the U.S. Constitution, federal revenue bills are required to be initiated in the House of Representatives. Many state statutes have similar statutes, requiring revenue bills to originate in a particular house of the legislature, or that revenue bills must be passed before a certain number of days prior to the expiration of the legislative session.
