Once the Third Reading is completed, the proposed legislation will be submitted to Chief & Council for the purpose of being signed into law via a Mohawk Council Resolution.

The Kahnawą:ke Justice System Law, usually referred to for the past several years as the Justice Act, is currently in its final 30-Day viewing period. Community members can access the document at www.kahnawakemakingdecisions.com.
