Just reading over the articles in the RG and I wanted to welcome the passing of the Rent Increases (Domestic Premises) Control Amendment Act 2009. Housing remains one of the biggest problems facing Bermuda, and while there is still quite a bit of work to do, expanding the ceiling for homes subject to rent control is certainly a welcome step.
I also see that the Labour Minister has been given greater powers regarding the National Training Board. To me the amendment in question just makes sense and I don’t have a problem with it at all.
I will be reading over the legislation as soon as I can (I am not sure if it is available on Bermuda Laws Online site yet), and will comment on them in greater detail at that time. If anyone has any initial thougts on them I would welcome hearing them.
