The 2013/2014 State of the Nation debate is now underway in the Senate.

The State of the Nation debate gives senators the opportunity to address issues of national importance.



It also gives cabinet ministers in the Senate an opportunity to address their portfolio responsibilities while highlighting government policies and programmes.



Senators are also expected to debate a report of the Electoral Commission of Jamaica on campaign financing.



Disagreement among members of parliament in the Lower House forced Leader of Government Business, Phillip Paulwell, to announce the establishment of a joint select committee to examine the proposed legislation.
