Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion to not insist on its amendments to the Water Legislation Amendment (Inspector-General of Water Compliance and Other Measures) Bill 2021. This means that the bill can be passed and become law.

What does this bill do?

According to the bill homepage, the bill was introduced to:

  • establish the role of an independent Inspector-General of Water Compliance to monitor, and provide independent oversight of, water compliance;
  • provide for the Inspector-General's powers and functions; and
  • introduce new offence and civil penalty provisions for unlawful conduct relating to the taking of water and new civil penalties for conduct relating to trading of water rights
