Parliamentary Counsel

Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Amendment (Household Assistance) Bill 2009

CJ229

Statement of reasons: why certain amendments should be moved as requests

Section 53 of the Constitution is as follows:

Powers of the Houses in respect of legislation

53. Proposed laws appropriating revenue or moneys, or imposing taxation, shall not originate in the Senate. But a proposed law shall not be taken to appropriate revenue or moneys, or to impose taxation, by reason only of its containing provisions for the imposition or appropriation of fines or other pecuniary penalties, or for the demand or payment or appropriation of fees for licences, or fees for services under the proposed law.

The Senate may not amend proposed laws imposing taxation, or proposed laws appropriating revenue or moneys for the ordinary annual services of the Government.

The Senate may not amend any proposed law so as to increase any proposed charge or burden on the people.

The Senate may at any stage return to the House of Representatives any proposed law which the Senate may not amend, requesting, by message, the omission or amendment of any items or provisions therein. And the House of Representatives may, if it thinks fit, make any of such omissions or amendments, with or without modifications.

Except as provided in this section, the Senate shall have equal power with the House of Representatives in respect of all proposed laws.

Amendments (4) and (5)

The effect of these amendments is to expand the circumstances in which a person is eligible to have an amount of FTB combined supplement added in working out the person’s annual rate of family tax benefit (which may increase the amount of expenditure out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund under the standing appropriation in section 233 of the A New Tax System (Family Assistance) (Administration) Act 1999 ). They are covered by section 53 because they will increase a “proposed charge or burden on the people”.



 

Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Amendment (Household Assistance) Bill 2009 [No. 2] SHEET CJ229

 

 

 

Statement by the Clerk of the Senate pursuant

to the order of the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 



Amendments (4) and (5)

 

The Senate has long followed the practice that it should treat as requests amendments which would result in increased expenditure under a standing appropriation, although this interpretation is not consistent with other elements of the established interpretation of the third paragraph of section 53 of the Constitution. This has nothing to do with the introduction of bills under the first paragraph of section 53.

 

On the basis that these amendments would result in increased expenditure under the standing appropriation in the A New Tax System (Family Assistance)(Administration) Act 1999 , it is in accordance with the precedents of the Senate that these amendments be moved as requests.
