Bill 34: Mineral Resources Act
Reports Of Committees On The Review Of Bills

Cory Vanthuyne Yellowknife North

Mr. Speaker, your committee wishes to report on its consideration of Bill 34, Mineral Resources Act. Bill 34 received second reading in the Legislative Assembly on February 12, 2019, and was referred to the Standing Committee on Economic Development and Environment for review. Today I am advising the House of committee's wish to extend our review of Bill 34 with the intention to report back to the House by August 16, 2019. The short extension will allow committee to complete its clause-by-clause review, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, August 13, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, in accordance with Rule 75(1)(c) of the Rules of the Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories, I move, seconded by the honourable Member for Sahtu, that the review period for Bill 34 be extended to August 16, 2019. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
