It was announced last week that November 12 will be the date when Governor General, Quentin Bryce, opens the 44th parliament and sitting resumes following the election.
Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz, said he was excited to get the ball rolling on fulfilling some of the campaign promises which were made during the hard fought election.
The first item of legislative business will be laws to repeal the carbon tax. We promised that throughout the election, and we are going to deliver it said Mr. Buchholz.
If successful the repeal bills will remove the carbon tax, end the carbon tax on fuels used in shipping, rail and air transport and on synthetic greenhouse gases such as refrigeration gas.
Scott Buchholz believes repealing the carbon tax is what the people and businesses of Wright want and need.
Since the carbon tax was introduced back in 2010 I have heard case after case of families, small businesses and pensioners who have had to go without in order to pay their utility bills,
When the carbon tax is gone, households and small businesses in Wright will be around $550 better off in 2014/15 than they would have been with the carbon tax in place. This is about taking the pressure off, Mr. Buchholz said.
