Committee Details

Legislation Review Committee

The Legislation Review Committee reviews each Bill introduced into Parliament and reports on its impact on personal rights and liberties.

 

The Committee must, under section 8A of the Legislation Review Act 1987, report to Parliament Bills that:

 

  • trespass on personal rights and liberties
  • do not properly define administrative powers that may affect personal rights
  • do not allow for the review of decisions that may affect personal rights
  • inappropriately delegate legislative power
  • do not sufficiently allow the Parliament to scrutinise legislative power.

The Committee also reviews and reports on any regulation that impacts on personal rights and liberties, or adversely affects the business community.

 

COVID-19 related reports: The Committee has published the documents below as compilations of its reports dealing with COVID-19 bills and regulations in NSW. The reports have been tabled in the Houses of Parliament and published across a number of individual Legislation Digests.  It is hoped the republication in this compilation format will be useful to members of parliament and the public to find and access the Committee's reports and comments in one place. These documents will be updated to include further bills and regulations as the Committee reports on them.

The documents are published in two parts: Volume I – Summary contains the committee's comment on each bill or regulation only. Volume II – Reports reproduces the Committee's full report on the bill or regulation.
