Free access to online legislation ia a federation: Achievements of Australian Governments and issues remaining

Michael Rubacki


The paper explores the development of government provision of online access to legislation in Australia, including technologies used in the drafting/publishing process. It focuses on the more recent developments such as the use of websites as part of the actual legislative process and the near complete demise of paper products. It looks at the conflicts that arise in balancing continuing demands for traditional print-like products and developing more effecrtive online services, and the elusiveness of more collaborative nationwide approaches.
