    "One of the lawmakers' duties is to make law/a law/laws."

    "One of the lawmakers' duties is to make law/a law/laws."
    Should I say make law, a law or laws? And can I omit the "to" after "is"? Which is more common, with or without "to"? Thanks!

    I'd only say

    'One of the lawmakers' duties is to make laws'.
