March 24: Second Reading of Bill 160 Continues
The second reading of Bill 160, Occupational Health and Safety Statute Law Amendment Act, 2011, continued last week with no apparent end in sight. So far, there’s been over 6 ½ hours of debate. The focus of the criticism has been on the prevention council and chief prevention officer. Hopefully, sometime soon, the Assembly will send Bill 160 to committee for any revisions, solicitation of public comments, etc.
