List of Recommendations

Recommendation 1

The Committee recommends the Government amend the quarantines provided to recipients of donations (related to receiving, keeping and using a donation), to limit the exclusive application of Federal donation laws in these circumstances to donations that are kept solely in a Federal electoral account. This can be achieved either by:
banking donations with the Federal arm of a political entity that is a separate legal entity to a State arm, or
banking donations in a separate Federal account operated by a State arm of a political entity, from which amounts are only permitted to be drawn down for Federal purposes.

Recommendation 2

Subject to amendments to reflect the recommendations in this report, the Committee recommends that the Parliament pass the Electoral Legislation Amendment (Miscellaneous Measures) Bill 2020, as amended.
