Greens oppose Labor’s electric vehicle tax

first_imgGreens oppose Labor’s electric vehicle tax Australian GreensThe Victorian Greens have slammed the Victorian Labor Government’s decision to introduce a user charge for electric vehicles and vow to oppose it in state parliament.The Greens say the tax would be bad for our climate and the electric vehicle industry, and would discourage the uptake of electric vehicles in Victoria.As stated by Victorian Greens spokesperson for transport, Sam Hibbins MP:“The Victorian Greens will oppose the Victorian Labor Government’s electric vehicle tax.“Governments around the world are making electric vehicles cheaper and encouraging uptake but the Victorian Government is heading in the opposite direction.“The UK government recently announced it will be banning the sale of petrol cars by 2030. Victoria should be making electric vehicles cheaper, not more expensive.“This is a lazy tax that squibs the wider reform of replacing fuel exercise with road user charges. Placing a stand alone tax on electric vehicles without wider reform will act as a disincentive for cleaner air and lower emissions.” /Public Release.

Parliament passes News Media And Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code

first_imgParliament passes News Media And Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code Liberal Party of AustraliaParliament has today passed the Morrison Government’s world-leading News Media and Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code that addresses the bargaining power imbalance between news media businesses and digital platforms.The Code was developed after extensive analysis from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), including almost three years of public consultation.The Code will ensure that news media businesses are fairly remunerated for the content they generate, helping to sustain public interest journalism in Australia.The Code provides a framework for good faith negotiations between the parties and a fair and balanced arbitration process to resolve outstanding disputes.Importantly, the code encourages parties to undertake commercial negotiations outside the Code and the Government is pleased to see progress by both Google and more recently Facebook in reaching commercial arrangements with Australian news media businesses.The Code is a significant microeconomic reform, one that has drawn the eyes of the world on the Australian parliament. Our commitment to legislating the Code reflects the importance of a diverse and well-resourced news media sector to our democracy and the Australian people.The Government would like to thank all stakeholders for their contribution throughout this process, particularly the ACCC for its ground-breaking research which led to the drafting of the Code.The Code will be reviewed by Treasury within one year of its commencement to ensure it is delivering outcomes that are consistent with the Government’s policy intent. /Public Release.

S.Y. Kim leads Lang by two at Founders Cup

first_imgPHOENIX – Sei Young Kim made two eagles in a 6-under 66 on Friday in the JTBC Founders Cup to take a two-stroke lead into the weekend at Desert Ridge. The 23-year-old South Korean player had a tournament-record 15-under 129 total. She opened with a 63 on Thursday. After a 300-yard drive on the par-5 15th, her 165-yard approach nearly bounced into the hole and settled 7 feet past the cup to set up the second eagle. On the par-5 second, she made a 30-foot eagle putt. Kim won three times last season and was the LPGA Tour’s rookie of the year. Brittany Lang was second after a 68. Jacqui Concolino and Italy’s Giulia Sergas were 12 under. Concolino shot a 64 to match 17-year-old amateur Hannah O’Sullivan for the best round of the day. Sergas had a 68.last_img read more

Panel Sends Tougher DUI Measures to Montana Legislature

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email HELENA – Lawmakers hoping to change Montana’s drinking and driving culture agreed Friday to send a series of tougher proposed laws to the full Legislature.Montana has long ranked among the worst states in drunken driving statistics. Lawmakers and policy leaders are increasingly deciding the time has come to crack down.Proposals approved Friday by the Law and Justice Interim Committee include efforts to reduce the number of minors who drink, stiffen some penalties for drunken driving and to make it easier for authorities prosecuting the crimes.Supporters said the proposals will help. And they expect many more ideas to come before the Legislature, including one from the attorney general to closely monitor repeat offenders.“It does a lot,” said Sen. Jim Shockley, R-Victor. “As always you are trying to make a bad situation better, it will never be perfect.”One proposal creates stiffer penalties for “aggravated” drunken driving, such as having a blood alcohol content of .20 percent, far above the legal limit of .08 percent. Another gets rid of the law that does not allow courts to consider DUIs older than five years to be considered when seeking tougher punishment.About a dozen separate proposed bills would also take away the driver’s license of minors ticketed for possessing alcohol, and provide more alcohol treatment.Also included are plans to let police get a warrant 24 hours a day to get a blood test from those refusing a breath test. Currently drivers can refuse the test, and although they lose their driver’s license they deny key evidence.A plan to mandate training for servers follows the high-profile death last year of a highway patrolman that has served as a catalyst for much of the focus on tougher DUI laws.The driver who killed Montana Highway Patrol trooper Michael Haynes was served 13 drinks over 3 1/2 hours. The judge in that case sent a message by throwing out a plea deal against the bartender in favor of mandatory jail time.Lawmakers hope better training will teach bartenders the dangers of serving way too much and prevent similar situations.“I think it’s an important step forward in prevention,” said Mothers Against Drunk Drivers’ Rebecca Sturdevant. “This is really important.”Others believe connecting minor-in-possession penalties to driver’s licenses will help reduce underage DUIs by preventing the drinking in the first place. Some high school students have been advocating the change.“The young people’s position is to be tough,” said Rep. Ken Peterson, R-Billings. “Word spreads among the young people really well. If they know that, maybe they won’t drink. I think that message we send is real important.”last_img read more

They treat us as warm bodies, human widgets.‘It would be wrong to attempt to skirt the unavoidable truth that as players become bigger, faster and stronger they will be chewed up and spat out quicker,’ Hartley said.The Telegraphreported that to this day, Hartley is still affected by the injuries that he suffered during his rugby career. Due to three concussions late in his career, Hartley still gets dizzy spells and muddles his words.‘I try to enjoy what’s happening now, but it’s always a concern,’ Hartley added on his concerns of long-term brain injury.Full interviewPhoto: David Rodgers/Getty Images Posted in Test Rugby, Top headlines ‘ ‘ Post by SA Rugby magazine  729  45center_img Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby MagUndo BuzzAura16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayBuzzAura|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ ‘ AlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoGoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ 熱門話題小心會瘦過快…網友推爆:「真的瘦的超誇張!」熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Rugby players are ‘crash dummies’ for ‘money men’ ‘last_img read more
