There's something 'bout that work, work, work, work, work, work… Lots of new inquiries mean opportunities to have your say on battery cages for chickens, music festivals, Northern Beaches hospital and 3 new bills before the House.
In our latest blog, committees report on the Sydney stadiums strategy and a bill related to the proposal to raise the Warragamba Dam wall, while hearings kick off for the inquiry into the Westconnex project.
