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

  • Ethical Investment (Crown Financial Institutions) Bill (Grant Robertson)
  • Electricity (Renewable Preference) Amendment Bill (Chris Hipkins)
  • Local Electoral (Māori Representation) Amendment Bill (Te Ururoa Flavell)
  • Consumer Guarantees Amendment Bill (Jackie Blue)

Two of these bills have already been covered in "In th eballot", Robertson's here (when it was previously fronted by Maryan Street), and Hipkins' here.

This was the biggest ballot all term, with eight new bills pushing the total to almost 40. I'll try and put together an "In the ballot" post covering some of the newcomers later this afternoon.

The full list of bills is on Red Alert.
