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

  • Sentencing (Domestic Violence) Amendment Bill (Nanaia Mahuta)
  • Education (Teaching Council of Aotearoa) Amendment Bill (Chris Hipkins)

There were seventy bills in the ballot today, but still no bill to repeal blasphemous libel. Which I guess shows us how much we can trust the public statements of politicians.
