The AARTO Amendment Bill, 2015 [B38B-2015] was passed by the National Assembly on 5 September 2017 and is now before the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) for final approval, before being signed into law.
Section 118 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa makes it a duty of a provincial legislature to facilitate public involvement in the legislative and other processes of the legislature and its committees and to that end, all provincial legislatures in South Africa must hold public hearings and consider written submissions from the public regarding the AARTO Amendment Bill, 2015.
The following provinces have announced/held public hearings:
- Eastern Cape
- Free State
- Northern Cape
- North West
- Western Cape
If there is no clickable link to your province in the list above, it is because it has not yet made any announcements regarding public hearings.
