Subject: URGENT – SUBMISSIONS LOCAL GOV. RECOGNITION CLOSE – 15FEB 2013 Date: Sat, 2 Feb 2013 12:21:27 +0800
From: Donna Aussie <fedupmandate@
Please everyone, put your submissions in with regards to local government recognition in constitution. Some of the submissions state Australian Constitution and not the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act.
I have attached the submission from Colin Barnett. Something is going on it WA. The federal government does not have his support. Maybe he already knows this will wipe out state government in preference for local government.
Do you know about this Committee?
Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government
On 1 November 2012 the Parliament of Australia established a Joint Select Committee to inquire into and report on the majority finding (financial recognition) of the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government including by amending section 96 of the Australian Constitution.
The Committee may report from time to time but it has been asked to present a preliminary report no later than December 2012 if possible; and directed to present a final report no later than February 2013.
The Final Report from the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government can be accessed by clicking on the link Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government. Public submissions to the Expert Panel are available to the Committee for the purposes of this inquiry.
The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday 15 February 2013.
Section 96. The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia.
“During a period of ten years after the establishment of the Commonwealth and thereafter until Parliament otherwise provides, Parliament may grant financial assistance to any State on such terms and conditions as the Parliament thinks fit”.

Subject: Further: URGENT: 2nd PUBLIC HEARING 20FEB2013 – SUBMISSIONS LOCAL GOV. RECOGNITION CLOSE – 15FEB 2013 /
It is with regret that I was not aware – by any Media that on 01Nov2012 that the Commonwealth Government established as per below. I note as at yesterday morning on the website “Parliament of Australia”…, a 2nd Public Hearing will take place on:
Wednesday, 20 February 2013
9.00am and 5.00pm –
New South Wales.
I will strictly make an effort to listen to the Television News, ABC in particular- (I do not buy newspapers) as to whether I will hear abut the 2nd public hearing in February.
Todate, I have asked at least 20 of my friends, and not one person was aware. Therefore, I kindly request that the Submission date of 15 February, 2013 be extended. I know that it can be done. The Northern Territory Intervention Submission date was extended.
Thanking you, and have a good day.
