REGINA - The fall sitting of the Saskatchewan legislature saw the creation of a new Crown to help build infrastructure and higher fines for people who speed in highway construction zones.

The fall sitting wraps up today and Premier Brad Wall says it was a constructive one.

Wall says there was a good suggestion from the Opposition NDP on the creation of a public registry of government buildings that contain asbestos.

He says it highlights the fact that politicians can work on things in a non-partisan fashion.

NDP Leader John Nilson says there are still many unanswered questions about a massive piece of labour legislation that was introduced Tuesday.

Nilson says he would have liked more time in the fall sitting to review that legislation.
