The usual ballot for Member's Bills was held today, and the following bills were drawn:

  • Local Government (Rating Cap) Amendment Bill (Rodney Hide)
  • Consumer’s Right to Know (Food Information) Bill (Jeanette Fitzsimons)
  • Marine Reserves (Consultation with Stakeholders) Amendment Bill (Eric Roy)

These have all been previously discussed, the local government and marine reserves bills here, and the food information bill here. I'll add full links once they go up on Knowledge Basket.

Meanwhile, the ballot is beginning to thin. There were only 30 bills this time, and no new ones. Which suggests we should try and extract something useful from the progressive bills thinktank and start pushing bills at politicians.
