THE Labor-Greens minority government has passed 40 per cent more legislation than its predecessor, despite some high-profile reforms being knocked back by the Legislative Council.
As of last week 197 pieces of legislation had passed the lower house, with 29 still before the Legislative Council.
The Lennon-Bartlett government passed just 140 pieces of legislation.
Attorney-General Brian Wightman said the figures showed the government was not ineffective.
``The legislation that's currently going though the house is some of the most important legislation that's gone through in a very long time,'' Mr Wightman said.
``The flow of legislation has been continuous.''
Mr Wightman said recent reforms such as the removal of mistaken age defence in sexual assault cases involving victims aged 13 and under and making it easier for firefighters or people exposed to asbestos to seek compensation were significant wins for social justice.
He said changes to the guardianship and powers of attorney acts were of personal significance because he had acted as guardian for his father.
``I have got to say that given that my dad died almost 12 months to the day of passing that through the House of Assembly, that really meant a lot,'' he said.
All those reforms received bipartisan support.
Legislation that was knocked back or significantly amended in the upper house, including same-sex marriage, elements of the Tasmanian Forestry Agreement and elements of the Anti-Discrimination Act, did not have Liberal Party support.
Deputy Opposition Leader Jeremy Rockliff said focusing on legislation missed the point.
``The problem with the Labor-Greens minority government isn't how many bills they've rammed through the Parliament, the problem is the fact that unemployment is at 8.6 per cent, 10,000 full-time jobs have been lost and more people are leaving the state than coming here,'' he said.
