Our opposition to this bill, which entrenches a rotten, life destroying, poker machine empire in disadvantaged communities has been long and consistent.

Gaming Control Amendment (Future Gaming Market) Bill 2021

As we know, the proliferation of poker machines in areas of socio-economic disadvantage across the state has had a profoundly harmful impact.

Legislation - 13 October 2021

Legislation, Clause Being Highlighted

Speech - 13 October 2021

Gordon Dam, Hydro Tasmania

Energy Security

When Basslink went down in December 2015, It was a perfect storm of bureaucrats who failed to listen to the climate science.

Question - 13 October 2021

Bushfire, Active Blaze

Forest Management Practices - Forest Logging and Increased Fire Risk

The announcement of a net zero by 2030 target that relies on our forests doing the heavy lifting - the same forests that the government continues to log.

Question - 13 October 2021

Industrial Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Energy - Net Carbon Zero Emissions

The announcement to enshrine net carbon zero emissions by 2030 is cynical non action on the climate crisis. We already reached that milestone.

Auditor-General's Report into Local Government Recruitment

Legislation - 12 October 2021

Alcohol and Drug Dependency Repeal Bill 2021

It is distressing to think that reviews into the Alcohol and Drug Dependency Act indicated as far back as 14 years ago that this was out of date at that point.
