The Skilling Australian Fund legislation was just passed in the Senate

The Senate agreed to make two amendments to the bill:

The amendment from Senator Cameron stipulated that the labour market test must be conducted within 4 months before the nomination, and the advertisement period is 4 weeks, so that a considerable proportion of Australians with appropriate qualifications and experience will be notified of the position.The appropriate skills and experience  for the position should be included in the advertisement.

Senator Griff’s amendment stipulated that 18 months after the Royal Consent date, the operation of  the Skilling Australian Fund Act will be reviewed independently  as soon as practicable and the review will be completed within six months.
