Heavy Reading for MHAs
October 17, 2007

The new members of the House of Assembly have some heavy reading, a two volume handbook that spells out the rules for member's allowances. The Clerk of the House of Assembly, Bill MacKenzie, says the rules are laid out in such a manner as to eliminate interpretation and confusion. Under the new rules, constituency allowances will be made public. Chief Justice Derek Green recommended each member turn over their records every six months for review, but Speaker Harvey Hodder thinks that time frame is too long. He'd like to see the records examined on a more regular basis and will make that recommendation to the new House of Assembly Management Board.

Instead of the two volume handbook maybe it would of been much simpler if they just read commandment #8.
