Scrutiny News is a brief newsletter highlighting key aspects of the work of the Senate Scrutiny of Bills Committee and the Senate Regulations and Ordinances Committee. It has a particular focus on information that may be useful while bills are under consideration and legislative instruments are subject to disallowance, and seeks to raise awareness about the committees' scrutiny principles (see Senate standing orders 23 and 24). Scrutiny News is published each sitting week after the committees' Scrutiny Digest and Delegated legislation monitor have been tabled in the Senate.
