Western Australians have only a few weeks left to have their say on a review of the key legislation that protects the State’s multi-billion dollar food and agricultural industries, as well as the State’s unique environment and lifestyle.

Submissions to the second stage of a review of the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 (BAM Act) close at midnight, Sunday 4 December.

Review chairperson Kaylene Gulich said the BAM Act was a crucial piece of legislation that protected WA’s food and agricultural industries, natural environment and community from the impact of pests, weeds and diseases.

Ms Gulich said input from a broad cross-section of the community was required to build a strong biosecurity legislative framework.
