Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 9 Hansard (23 August) . . Page.. 3534 ..

play a very important role in scrutinising the work of government, ensuring that the bills we pass here are workable and practical and creating opportunities for Canberrans to have their say on issues of community importance.

In the months ahead the Assembly committees will be dealing with some very big issues, like end of life issues, compulsory third-party insurance reform and the establishment of the ACT's integrity commission. While this work often goes on in non-sitting weeks and perhaps without the level of attention of, say, question time or sitting day parliamentary debates, these committees are another essential part of the ACT's democratic process.

In the 2018-19 fiscal year the Office of the Legislative Assembly will also be focusing on a range of other practical priorities including: continuing the digital transformation of the Assembly's business processes and progressing planning for the digitalisation of the Assembly's archived records; completing the double glazing of the Assembly building's external windows to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs and noise; exploring improvements to the physical security of the building through a review of the layout of the public entrance to the Assembly building; and, very importantly, hosting ceremonial celebrations in May of 2019 for the 30th anniversary of the first sitting of the Assembly.
