Summary

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 on manufactured horse feed and worm treatments for horses; imposes penalties for unpaid levies and the remission of any penalties for late payments; enables the collection of information and documents as specified by the Commonwealth; provides for entry, search and seizure powers; requires the minister to review the levy mechanism every five years unless the levies are active at the time the review is due.
