A ballot for a single member's bill was held today, and the following bill was drawn:

  • Parental Leave and Employment Protection (Shared Leave) Amendment Bill (Nicola Willis)

The bill allows paid parental leave to be split between carers of a child and taken at the same time. Which isn't necessarily a terrible idea, but I'd rather just see a straight-up expansion.

There were 69 bills in the ballot today.
