Appropriation Bills

Sections 27 of the Financial Accountability Act 2009 provides that for each financial year, the Treasurer must present Bills to the Legislative Assembly for an Annual Appropriation Act. There are two Appropriation Bills: one for the Legislative Assembly, known as the Appropriation (Parliament) Bill; and one for all other agencies, known as the Appropriation Bill. The Bills provide for:

  • 2015-16 appropriation to fund the cost of delivering departmental services, administered items and equity adjustments in that year
  • supply for 2016-17 to allow the normal operations of government to continue until the Appropriation Bills for 2016-17 receives assent.
