Australian Bill To Revise NSW Public Holidays

The Premier of the Australian State of New South Wales, Kristina Keneally, has introduced the "Public Holidays Bill 2010" to amend and clarify the status of public holidays in NSW.

The changes included in the "Public Holidays Bill 2010", meant to take effect as of 2012, follow the recommendations of the independent inquiry that was conducted by Professor Joellen Riley, on the request of the NSW government (31-May-2009 and 18-Aug-2009).

The "Public Holidays Bill 2010" includes the recently announced public holiday status for Easter Sunday (13-Oct-2010) and clarifies under which circumstances a weekend public holiday is moved to the following weekday and under which circumstances a weekend public holiday gives rise to an additional public holiday on the next weekday.

Despite the recent national harmonization of what happens to the ANZAC Day public holiday when it falls on a Sunday or another public holiday (15-Jan-2009), in the aforementioned bill, the ANZAC Day public holiday is to be observed on April 25, every year, regardless of the day of the week when April 25 falls, but only beginning in 2012 (as per Part 2 of Schedule 1: Monday 25 April 2011 is a public holiday for Anzac Day but not for Easter Monday. Tuesday 26 April 2011 is declared to be a public holiday for the whole State for Easter Monday).
