JOHOR BARU: The state assembly passed the Supplementary Supply (2005) Enactment Bill to allow the withdrawal of RM13.068mil from the Consolidated Fund for expenditure. 

Of the total, RM2.815mil will go to the Mentri Besar’s office, RM2.106mil to the State Legislative Assembly, RM1.275mil to the State Secretary’s office and RM1.08mil to the Public Works Department.  

The House also approved an additional RM3.410mil to be spent on development (RM1.5mil) and for the upgrading of religious schools (RM1.910mil).  

The assembly then adjourned indefinitely.  

Earlier, Religious, Education, Higher Education, Human Resource, Science and Technology and Innovation Committee chairman Zainal Abidin Osman said there had been 285 industrial accidents, between January and August this year. 

These resulted in 22 deaths and 18 victims suffering permanent disabilities. 

He added that the state government has taken several measures including awareness exhibitions and seminars to educate workers. 

“Our proposed long-term strategies include coming up with guidelines on safety and health at the workplace as well as integrating them into the education curriculum,” he said.
