English translation:introduced
Explanation:
In a democracy, a member of parliament can propose a law, which can be introduced, when approved (usually going through lower and upper houses).

For a person to introduce a law, he/she would presumably have to be a dictator (or maybe "her government" is meant here).

initiated / sponsored / authored


Explanation:
It would be good to know who/what "sie" refers to - if it's a person, "authored" or "sponsored" might be possible translations. If "sie" refers to an institution, initiated would be a better term.

et. auf den Weg bringen - get something under way (od. off the ground);
