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

  • Electricity (Renewable Preference) Amendment Bill (Charles Chauvel)
  • Conservation Natural Heritage Protection Bill (Jacqui Dean)

Both bills were previously covered in "In the ballot", here and here. Chauvel's bill has been before the House before, in 2010, and was voted down. its difficult to see it gettign a different result now, but as the Greens have shown, you need to keep making the argument in order to win it. And in this case, its an argument that definitely needs to be made.

The full list is on Red Alert, here.
