The state government has confirmed the introduction of poker machine reforms and changes to political donation laws have been delayed, but promised both would be introduced by the end of the year.
The government had earlier promised to introduce legislation that would bring Tasmania's political donation disclosures in line with other states before the winter break, but was delayed due to the election.
Leader of government business Michael Ferguson said both sets of reforms - promised in the last term of Parliament - would be introduced this calendar year.

He said the process of bringing the pokies bill to Parliament was ongoing.
"You'll certainly see that legislation this calendar year, we're going to go through a further process of public consultation before we take our bill to parliament," Mr Ferguson said.
Earlier this year, the state government released its final report on the Electoral Act Review and accepted all 11 recommendations.
At the time of that announcement, Premier Peter Gutwein committed to introducing the legislation in the first half of 2021.
Mr Ferguson said the bill was still being worked on.
"The government is committed to electoral reform and the Minister for Justice and Attorney General Elise Archer has responsibility for that. She's continuing to work with her department on bringing a bill to parliament," he said.
Parliament will resume this week with the government looking to bring in three supply bills ahead of the budget in August.
Land tax changes were among the bills that would be prioritised with Parliament returning this week.
