Revenue Legislation Amendment Act 2017 - a bill for an Act to amend the Duties Act 2001, the First Home Owner Grant Act 2000, the Land Tax Act 2010 and the Taxation Administration Act 2001 for particular purposes.

The granting of Royal Assent to bills passed by the Legislative Assembly is one of the Governor's key constitutional duties, and is an integral part of an Act of Parliament becoming the law of the land.
