Catalan term or phrase: proposta de llei
"10. Un cop aconseguida la majoria absoluta (fet que alguns especialistes atribueixen a la imatge de fermesa que el PP va manifestar durant la campanya electoral en el tema de immigration i la violència al Pais Basc), tot i que formalment el govern declara que busca el consens i el diàleg, la tramitació de la reforma de la llei s’acaba fent com a projecte de llei i no com a **proposta** sense aprovar-se cap de les esmenes presentades al senat per part de la resta de forces polítiques."

"La reforma de la llei 7/1985 parteix d’una proposta de llei de CiU, IC i Nueva Izquierda, a la que es va afegir un text del PSOE i esmenes del PP. A partir d’aquí s’inicia un únic text de consens per part d’una ponència parlamentaria en la que participen representants de tots els partits. "

"El dia 26 Mayor Oreja presenta un primer esborrany amb els principals canvis: augmenta la potestat administrativa del control de los moviments migratoris; s’endureixen els requisits per obtenir la legalització; es revisen els supòsits d’expulsió; es dificulta la presentació de recursos en la denegació de visats i queden ben marcades les diferències entre els drets dels immigrants legals i els il·legals. S’acompanya amb la voluntat del govern de no presentar un projecte de llei sinó una **proposta de llei** que es basi en dos principis: la urgència de la reforma i el consens."

We probably say "bill", as the response after yours has it. But I'm still out to lunch on "proposta" v. "projecte", and I'm not sure whether only one of those is a bill, and if so, which, or whether they both are. Thanks to both of you.
