Senate passes Civil Aviation Act

The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority will be permitted to keep its operating fund in interest-bearing bank accounts either in Bermuda or abroad senators have agreed.

There were no objections to the passing of The Civil Aviation Authority Amendment Bill 2021 read by Curtis Richardson, senator and Junior Minister for Transport, during yesterday’s Senate session.

The bill also allows the authority to submit financial reports to the Minister of Transport every 60 days rather than every 30.

Marcus Jones, an Opposition senator, said: “We do not have any objections to this amendment. We see the wisdom in extending the time from 30 to 60 days it seems to me to be the right thing to do to give the principals sufficient time to scrutinise the report and process it in an efficient manner. We support this bill.”

Both The Debt Collection Amendment Act 2021 and The Education Amendment (No. 2) Act 2021 were carried over until next week’s Senate sitting on July 21.
