Building watchdog bill clears Senate

AAP logoAAP 30/11/2016

The Turnbull government's plan to restore the building industry watchdog has cleared the Senate.

Legislation for the Australian Building and Construction Commission - first established by the Howard coalitiom government in 2005 and replaced by Labor in 2007 - passed the upper house on Wednesday morning.

It followed the passage last week of legislation establishing a registered organisations commission - the other bill used to trigger the July 2 double-dissolution federal election.
