History

Sefydlwyd Cynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru yn 1998 fel corfforaeth. Dim ond pwerau i greu deddfwriaeth eilradd, a hynny gyda chaniatâd Senedd y DU, oedd ganddo ar y cychwyn. Yn 2007 daeth Deddf Llywodraeth Cymru 2006 i rym a chynyddwyd pwerau deddfu'r Cynulliad. Bellach roedd gan y Cynulliad y pwerau i basio deddfau, a alwyd yn Fesurau'r Cynulliad, i Gymru mewn meysydd penodol gyda chydsyniad llywodraeth y DU. Yn dilyn pleidlais 'ie' yn refferendwm 2011 rhoddwyd pwerau deddfu ychwanegol i'r Cynulliad ac mae bellach yn gallu pasio deddfau ar yr holl bynciau yn yr ugain maes datganoledig heb ofyn am ganiatâd Senedd y DU. Bellach, nid yw cyfreithiau'r Cynulliad yn cael eu hadnabod fel Mesurau Cynulliad, ond yn hytrach mae cyfreithiau arfaethedig yn cael eu galw'n 'Biliau', a bydd cyfreithiau sydd wedi'u pasio yn cael eu galw'n 'Deddfau'. Y Trydydd Cynulliad (2007-2011), felly, oedd yr unig gynulliad i basio Mesurau. = Established in 1998 as a corporate body, the National Assembly for Wales initially only had powers to initiate secondary legislation when authorised by the UK Parliament. In 2007 the Government of Wales Act 2006 came into force and the law making powers of the Assembly were increased. The National Assembly now had the powers to make laws, called Assembly Measures, for Wales in defined areas with the permission of the UK Parliament. Following a 'yes' vote in the 2011 referendum further law making powers were given to the Assembly and it is now able to pass laws on all subjects in the twenty devolved areas without needing the agreement of the UK Parliament. Assembly laws now ceased to be called Assembly Measures and proposed laws are called Bills and the enacted laws are called Acts. Thus the Third Assembly (2007-2011) was the only Welsh Assembly to pass measures.
