Government moving fast on skills bills

The government introduced bills to abolish the National Skills Commission and establish Jobs and Skills Australia into the Reps on Wednesday yesterday the Senate referred them both to its Education and Employment Legislation Committee

The committee is required to report on both by September 23.

The version of the latter to be considered by the Senate may be a bit different, appearing after the Skills summit at the start of September.

But the government clearly wants it known that it is not mucking around on what it appears to consider a foundation reform
