"Who comes up with new Bills to take to the House of Reps? Where are ideas for new Bills formed?"

Thanks for your question.

Almost all bills are introduced by a government minister, who is responsible for the passage of the bill through the Parliament. Other members of parliament can also introduce their own bills, called private members' or private senators' bills.

Most bills are introduced into the House of Representatives and then sent to the Senate. However, bills may commence in the Senate, except for money and taxation bills. Almost all bills are introduced by a government minister, who is responsible for the passage of the bill through the Parliament. Other members of parliament can also introduce their own bills, called private members' or private senators' bills.

A bill becomes an Act of Parliament if it is passed with a majority vote in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The bill must be agreed to in identical form by both chambers, and given Royal Assent by the Governor-General (see Making a Law). If an Act does not specify a date on which it will commence, it comes into effect on the 28th day after it receives Royal Assent.
