Member's Day

Today is a Member's Day, and now that the tiresome local business has been cleared away, it looks like we might finally see some progress. Unfortunately it is likely to be progress in the wrong direction, with both Darien Fenton's Minimum Wage and Remuneration Amendment Bill and Jeanette Fitzsimons' Resource Management (Climate Protection) Amendment Bill set to be voted down.

The good news is that a ballot draws nearer - it could even be tomorrow if the House moves quickly tonight. Otherwise, with the second readings being cleared away, there will almost certainly be one after the next member's day. The parties better have their bills in order...
