Part of a package of three bills to establish a horse disease response levy, the bill: enables the collection and administration of a horse disease response levy from horse registration bodies; imposes penalties for unpaid levies and the remission of any penalties resulting from late payments; introduces information gathering powers to allow for the collection of information and documents as specified by the Commonwealth; and provides for regulations to prescribe details for the collection of the levy.
