This provides for parliamentary approval of the Scottish Government's spending plans, and the basis for any spending challenges.
Revenue Scotland and Tax Powers Bill
Establishes Revenue Scotland as the tax authority responsible for collecting new devolved taxes and any introduced in future, and for tackling tax avoidance.
Bankruptcy Consolidation Bill
The bill will put Scotland's bankruptcy legislation in one place in order to ensure that it is readable and accessible.
Conclusion of Contracts etc Bill
This will reduce the cost of signing contract documents, increase the likelihood of contracts being governed by Scots law and therefore help boost cross-border trade, and allow contracts by email.
Community Empowerment and Renewal Bill
Makes it easier for communities to take over under-used public assets to deal with vacant and derelict property - often dubbed the "urban right-to-buy."
Scottish Welfare Fund Bill
This maximises the effect of the Scottish Welfare Fund to strengthen links to local services and provide a better service to those who need it.
Ends right-to-buy in the social sector and toughens up control of private landlords, with a new regulator for letting agents and a new tribunal to settle disputes.
Mental Health Bill
This will improve treatment and care for people with a mental health disorder, removing unnecessary procedures and make existing processes more efficient for patients and health workers.
Food Standards Scotland Bill
This bill establishes a replacement for the Food Standards Agency, which was deprived of its responsibilities for nutrition and labelling by the UK Government.
Courts Reform Bill
Based on recommendations of our top judge Lord Gill, this will speed up and improve access to civil justice, sending smaller claims down to lower courts.
This will extend the time-bar period for personal injury claims and allow courts to impose a periodical payment order instead of a lump sum award of damages.
Air gun controls, lap-dancing venues, private hire taxis, scrap metal dealers and those buying alcohol for under-18s are all populist measures dealt with in this major catch-all bill.
RCAHMS & Historic Scotland Merger Bill
This will merge the Royal Commission on Ancient Monuments (1908) with Historic Scotland (1991), the latter being 10 times larger with 1100 staff.
