The list of acts of the 116th United States Congress includes all Acts of Congress and ratified treaties by the 116th United States Congress, which began on January 3, 2019, will end on January 3, 2021.

Acts include public and private laws, which are enacted after being passed by Congress and signed by the President; however, if the President vetoes a bill it can still be enacted by a two-thirds vote in both houses. The Senate alone considers treaties, which are ratified by a two-thirds vote.

All acts of this Congress signed into law were signed by President Donald Trump. The 116th Congress has enacted 6 statutes thus far.
