Update from the Legislature – March 22, 2023

The main estimates were passed on March 16. Members of the Legislative Assembly are now busy debating the government bills on the order paper, including legislation to implement the budget and eliminate the 50 per cent restriction on the growth factor in the Local Government Fiscal Framework. The Legislature is scheduled to sit until Thursday, March 30, but it is widely expected to rise by the end of this week.
