The Vehicle Acquisition Tax Law [车辆购置税法] takes effect on July 1.
The NPC Standing Committee (NPCSC) is expected to solicit public comments on the following draft laws this week:
- draft amendments to the Land Management Law [土地管理法] and the Urban Real Estate Administration Law [城市房地产管理法]
- draft Civil Code Part on Marriage and Family [民法典婚姻家庭编];
- draft Civil Code Part on Inheritance [民法典继承编];
- draft revision to the Forest Law [森林法];
- draft revision to the Law on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Waste [固体废物污染环境防治法];
- draft Community Corrections Law [社区矫正法]; and

The NPCSC will convene for its next regularly scheduled session in late August.
July 1 marks the 40th anniversary of the enactment of the Criminal Law [刑法] and the Criminal Procedure Law [刑事诉讼法] (among five other important laws). They were the first batch of laws enacted by the full NPC in the aftermath of the decade-long Cultural Revolution.
