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

  • Adverse Weather-affected Timber Recovery on Conservation Lands Bill (Maureen Pugh)
  • Accident Compensation (Notice of Decisions) Amendment Bill (Paulo Garcia)

(These were incidentally bills 3 and 2. Which sounds like someone didn't shake the biscuit tin very well...)

Both these bills will be voted on by the next Parliament. And in the case of Pugh's dirty piece of environmental pillage, hopefully voted down.

And that was the last ballot for the term. With a new parliament, there'll be a different balance of parties, and different ballot dynamics. Which will hopefully mean less of the law and order bullshit we've seen this term.
