The Attorney-General’s Department has invited LGA comments on the proposed draft Fines Enforcement and Debt Recovery (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill 2020 (the Bill).
The Bill proposes amendments of a largely technical nature to the Fines Enforcement and Debt Recovery Act 2017 (the Act) and also proposes amendments to the Enforcement of Judgements Act 1991 (EOJ Act).
A copy of the proposed Bill is available here.
A summary of the major provisions of the Bill, based on advice of the Attorney General, is available in a Summary Paper available to members here.
The LGA seeks feedback from member councils to inform its submission to the Attorney-General. Please provide any feedback by 10 February to Alicia Stewart at email@example.com
