Last week four Bills were introduced to the Victorian Parliament which may be of interest to Murray Plains residents.
Of great importance to regional Victorians is the Country Fire Authority Amendment (Protecting Volunteer Firefighters) Bill 2016 introduced by the Liberal Nationals Coalition in the Legislative Council this week. This Bill acknowledges and protects the rights of our dedicated hardworking volunteer firefighters who put their own lives on the line to protect our regional communities.
Government bills introduced this week included:
- Statute Law Revision Bill 2017
- Electricity Safety Amendment (Bushfire Mitigation Civil Penalties Scheme) Bill 2017
- Fair Work (Commonwealth Powers) Amendment Bill 2017
More information on the proposed Bills can be found at www.parliament.vic.gov.au/legislation.
