Module 3 – Lesson 10- How are laws made ?

The Australian Parliament has the right to amend or create new laws for the benefit of all Australians. The procedure is as follows: a member of the Australian Parliament will propose a new law or revisions to an existing one. A “Bill” is what this is called. The Bill will next be reviewed, debated, and voted on by both houses of Parliament. When a Bill receives “Royal Assent” from a majority of members in both Houses of Parliament, it is sent to the Governor-General, who signs it into law.

Making legislation in state and territory legislatures follows a similar procedure.
