Inquiry into the proposed amendments to the Electoral Legislation Amendment (Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform) Bill 2017
The submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters regarding its inquiry into the Electoral Legislation Amendment (Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform) Bill 2017 was prepared by the Law Council.
The Law Council notes the short timeframe in which to provide submissions to the Committee, and for this reason the Law Council’s input is focussed primarily on the potential effects of the proposed measures on the charitable sector, as informed by the Law Council’s Not-for-Profit Legal Practice and Charities Committee of the Legal Practice Section.
This submission also benefits from input from the Constitutional Law Committee of the Federal Litigation and Dispute Resolution Section of the Law Council.
