The Saskatchewan government introduced more than 70 new liquor regulations and a massive labour bill during the fall sitting of the legislature which ended Thursday.
Premier Brad Wall says the changes represent modernization.
He says he would characterize the decision to privatize the Crown corporation that handles land and personal property registries the same way.
NDP Leader John Nilson says he's pleased that the government changed labour rules to better protect late-night retail workers from violence.
Nilson also likes the fact that the government agreed to an NDP suggestion to make public a list of government buildings that contain asbestos.
The legislation that was introduced this fall is expected to be passed in the spring sitting, which starts in March.
