Hearings set for Uber, education, red tape bills
FIVE contentious Conservative government bills go to public hearings the week of Oct. 23.
Two nights — Oct. 23-24 — have been set aside to hear Bill 31, which would allow colleges and universities to raise tuition fees annually by five per cent plus inflation.
At the same time in another committee room, Bill 30, allowing vehicles-forhire services — such as Uber — will be heard.
The omnibus Bill 24 reducing government red tape is scheduled for Oct. 25-26.
Two bills will be heard Oct. 25 in one committee room: Bill 23, eliminating the freshwater fish marketing board, and Bill 27, making changes to election laws.
All hearings begin at 6 p.m. on the second floor of the legislature. The hearings could go as late as midnight.
