Passage of legislation

One of the main roles of the Australian Parliament is to make laws for the people of Australia. Learn more about each step of the law-making process with our passage of legislation website.

Bills and committees

The House of Representatives Selection Committee and the Senate Selection of Bills Committee routinely consider whether bills should be referred to committees for inquiry and report. The House Committee reports its determinations to the chamber, while the Senate Committee makes recommendations which the Senate may then adopt. Bills may also be referred to committees by either chamber or by the relevant minister to House and joint committees.
