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

  • Credit Reforms (Responsible Lending) Bill (Charles Chauvel)
  • Climate Change (Government Vehicle Procurement) Bill (Kennedy Graham)
  • Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill (Roger Douglas)

Chauvel's bill has been previously covered here and here. The other two have been covered in "In the ballot" here and here.

There were two new bills in the ballot this week: Catherine Delahunty's Human Rights (Disability Commissioner) Amendment Bill, and Rahui Katene's New Zealand Order of Merit (Modernisation of Titular Titles) Bill (which sounds awfully familiar). The full list is on Red Alert here, and should be appearing on the Parliamentary website later in the day.

I should have another "In the ballot" post next week to fill in some of the final gaps.
