House marks busy session
This parliamentary session is the second longest in history, the Premier has said.
The Throne Speech laying out the Government’s legislative agenda was read last September and the House of Assembly has sat 37 times since.
Mr Burt said the long session was because of the amount of legislation he wanted to see passed.
He said: “We have had a busy and productive parliamentary session, the second longest in Bermuda’s history, putting through legislation to create a better and fairer Bermuda.
“This includes passing bills that have positioned Bermuda as a global leader in the fintech industry and addressed anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing.
“We also debated and passed legislation to reduce taxes for those making less than $96,000 a year, increase seniors’ pensions, and introduce roadside sobriety testing.”
