The Finance and Expenditure Committee has called for submissions on the Climate Change (Emissions Trading and Renewable Preference) Bill. Two copies, by Friday, 29 February 2008, to:

Finance and Expenditure Committee Secretariat
Parliament Buildings
Finance and Expenditure is a backwards committee, and does not accept electronic submissions.

The bill will establish an emissions trading regime as well as a ten-year ban on the construction of new thermal generation - both vital components of our response to climate change. Big business and the Deniers will be screaming loud on this one, so if you support government action, you should make your voice heard.

Making a submission is not difficult - it can be as simple as writing a letter saying "I support/oppose the bill" and giving reasons why. If you're not sure, check out the Clerk's online guide here.
