Do you capitalize Bill as in “Senator, please support this Bill”

I was wondering if I need to capitalize it because my teacher highlighted it but without giving a reason.

Answer

When referring to a specific bill, the word “bill” has to be capitalized, i.e. ( Acts Interpretation Amendment Bill 2011).

However, when referring to any bills like for example:

Parliament passed 75 bills in the past three years

The bill would not be needed to be capitalized.

Note how the Hon. Ian MacDonald moved for “these bills” to be read a second time.
