Motion that Bill 10, the Fiscal Statutes Amendment Act, 2016, be amended in section 5 by striking out subsection (2) and substituting the following:
(2) Section 3(2)(a) is amended by repealing subclause (i).
That is intended to make it more difficult for the government to borrow for operating. The previous amendment that I moved was to keep the debt cap on, and while this isn’t nearly as good as the first one, I think this still improves the bill. It just doesn’t improve it as much as what I had previously asked for. It’s intended, as I say, to make it harder to borrow for operating expenditures.
