The Victorian government through the Department of Primary Industries proposed new invasive species legislation for Victoria. In general we welcome the proposal for dedicated and comprehensive Invasive Species Legislation for Victoria.
We made a submission to the Proposed Invasive Species Management Bill Discussion Paper, containing a range of suggestions as to how the current proposal might be improved.
The Invasive Species Management Bill will be presented to the Victorian Parliament for consideration in late 2014.
