Before any bill becomes law, there are three main votes it must pass: these are the first, second and third readings. For most bills, there is a chance for members of the public to make submissions at the select committee stage, which happens between the first and second readings.
After a bill passes its third reading vote, it is granted Royal Assent by the Governor-General and becomes law, subject to any commencement provisions contained within the bill.
