Part of a package of three bills to establish a horse disease response levy, the bill amends the
Australian Animal Health Council (Live-stock Industries) Funding Act 1996 to enable horse disease response levies to be appropriated to the Australian Animal Health Council to repay amounts paid by the Commonwealth due to an outbreak of an emergency horse disease. Any excess levies are to be used for research and development activities or the promotion or maintenance of horse health.
