Alberta’s government house leader says new rules will be introduced this fall on farm safety and reducing large-scale greenhouse gas emissions.
Jason Nixon says the bills will be among 17 pieces of legislation to be introduced over the coming weeks.
Politicians return to the legislature Tuesday.
The fall sitting will be dominated by the release of the provincial budget on Oct. 24.
Premier Jason Kenney has said there will be restraint in the budget, as his government works to fulfil its promise to end the recent run of multibillion-dollar budget deficits within four years.
But Kenney said the cuts won’t be as deep or as drastic as the 20 per cent clawbacks under former premier Ralph Klein in the early 1990s.
