Bill 6

Appropriation (Interim Supply) Act, 2019 ($)

Status:

Came Into Force

Introduction

 

Appropriation Acts are, essentially, the government establishing how it’ll spend its money and how much it’ll spend - they’re “appropriating” the funds to the various parts of government. There are three primary forms of an Appropriation Act - Interim Supply, Supplementary Supply, or just the standard Appropriation Act. Bill 6 is an “Interim” Supply bill, meaning that it’s introduced in order to provide funds temporarily until the government introduces and passes a proper Appropriation Act to provide full funding.

 

Bill 6 is providing funds for the 2019-2020 financial year that ends on March 31, 2020, but more funding will be added by an Appropriation Act (and possibly a Supplementary Supply) in the future. As a result, this legislation is mostly just an initial measure and shouldn’t be treated as the government’s actual budget.
