New law creating an ICAC passes first vote by Parliament

Last week Parliament approve the first reading of a new law to create an Independent Commission Against Corruption.

This is the second and final piece of legislation needed in the process of establsihing an ICAC. The first legal change, amending the Constitution, was passed in November 2013.

Two further readings are still required before the Bill will become law.

ACT NOW! has been campaigning for an ICAC since AN! was established in 2010 and the fight against stealing from the public purse is one of ACT NOW!'s key campaigns.
