A success for ProgBills

Earlier in the year, I set up the New Zealand Progressive Bills Project to develop ideas for progressive, left-wing legislation. That project had its first success today, with the drawing of Maryan Street's Customs and Excise (Prohibition of Imports Made by Slave Labour) Amendment Bill (developed here; initial draft here) from the ballot. Hopefully it will be the first of many.
