The Victorian Government is now seeking public feedback on the exposure draft of the Disability Inclusion Bill. The lived experiences of people with disability will be crucial in shaping this legislation as part of the consultation approach.
An exposure draft is a draft piece of legislation that is released by a government agency for public consultation. An exposure draft may be updated or changed, and may or may not be introduced to Parliament following public consultation.
The consultation period runs from 20 September and closes on 31 October 2022.
The overview paper is available in a variety of formats, including easy read, braille, e-text, audio and Auslan. It is also available in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Vietnamese, and Arabic.
More information, including a copy of the Disability Inclusion Bill, an overview paper, details on how to make a submission and information on consultation activities is available on Engage Victoria.
