FEEDBACK OPPORTUNITY…several federal government committees are now taking submissions from the public on important pieces of draft legislation.
These include: - Chris Bowen’s new Climate Change Bill - Aged Care amending bill
It’s important for governments to hear about the lived experience of everyday people who are impacted by a draft bill - it helps craft laws that have real world benefits & helps avoid unintended consequences. So it’s really important for affected people to make submissions to parliamentary committees and inquiries.
Anyone can make a submission to these committees - either as an individual or as part of a group. If you are connected to a group that works in climate or aged care (for example), please consider encouraging them to make a submission to these inquiries and send them your views and relevant experiences for inclusion in what they write.
