Land Transport (Drug Driving) Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Hon Julie Anne Genter, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

New clause 2A

After clause 2 (page 5, after line 6), insert:

2A Repeal of this Act

(1)

This Act, and the amendments made by this Act to other enactments, are repealed on the day that is 5 years after the date on which this Act comes into force.

(2)

On the repeal, the provisions amended by this Act are restored as if those amendments had not been made by this Act.

(3)

However, the restoration does not otherwise affect the previous operation of the amended provisions or anything done under them.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Land Transport (Drug Driving) Amendment Bill to provide for a sunset clause to apply 5 years after the Act comes into force. This provides a safeguard to ensure that a future Parliament will need to consider whether the new drug-driving law is working and consider any necessary changes as a result of the effects of implementation.
