The government introduced the Sexual Assault Reform Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, or “the bill”, into the Assembly on 11 October last year. The bill makes a number of important changes to ACT legislation and continues the ACT government’s work to strengthen our response to, and the prevention of, sexual assault and sexual violence in the ACT community.
