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

  • High-power Laser Pointer Offences and Penalties Bill (Hamish Walker)
  • Crimes (Coward Punch Causing Death) Amendment Bill (Matt King)
  • Shark Cage Diving (Permitting and Safety) Bill (Sarah Dowie)
  • Education (Strengthening Second Language Learning in Primary and Intermediate Schools) Amendment Bill (Nikki Kaye)
So, a clean sweep for National, with two law and order bullshit bills, an interesting one about language policy, and a very timely bill about regulating shark cage diving. There were 73 bills in the ballot today. A full is is here.
