Update from the Legislature - Mar 17

March 16, 2021

The legislature is set to vote on the main estimates today and then commence debate on the government’s spring legislative agenda. On March 11, Bill 56 was introduced, which implements the changes to the Local Government Fiscal Framework that were announced in Budget 2021 and increases the 911 levy from 44 cents to 95 cents, largely in line with a resolution passed at AUMA’s 2020 Convention.

The provincial government also introduced Bill 52, the Recall Act, which establishes provisions for the public to recall provincial, municipal and school board officials and Bill 51, which creates a process for citizen-initiated referenda.
