  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2014-06-25.132.1) to read the bill for a second time.(Read about the stages that a bill must pass through to become law [here](http://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html). ) This means that the majority agree with the main idea of the bill.
  • _Background to the bill_
  • The [bill](http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5280) was introduced to establish the Emissions Reduction Fund to replace the [carbon price](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_pricing_in_Australia) and to provide a transition for the Carbon Farming Initiative.(Read more about the bill in its [explanatory memorandum](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;query=Id%3A%22legislation%2Fems%2Fr5280_ems_5bc5670e-bc49-4b79-8083-78c9ee7389ed%22). ) This is a central part of the Government's Direct Action policy,(Read more about Coalition's Direct Action policy on ABC News [here](http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-12-20/coalition-climate-change-direct-action-policy-explained/5067188). ) which was a key [election commitment](https://www.liberal.org.au/our-plan/environment) of the Coalition.
  • The Carbon Farming Initiative was introduced by the previous Labor Government and is a voluntary carbon offsets scheme that currently "allows farmers and land managers to earn carbon credits by reducing greenhouse gas emissions (such as nitrous oxide and methane) and storing carbon in vegetation and soils through changes to agricultural and land management practices (also known as carbon farming)".(Read more about the Carbon Farming Initiative [here](http://www.daff.gov.au/climatechange/cfi). )
  • The Coalition Government supports the Carbon Farming Initiative but Minister for Environment [Greg Hunt](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Greg_Hunt&mpc=Flinders&house=representatives) has said that it "can be better, stronger, simpler and more streamlined",(Read Mr Hunt's full comments [here](http://www.environment.gov.au/minister/hunt/2014/mr20140318.html). ) which is what this bill aims to do with its changes to the approvals process and the introduction of a 25-year-long option for carbon sequestration projects (currently all projects must run for a period of 100 years).(Read more about the changes in the bill's explanatory memorandum [here](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;query=Id%3A%22legislation%2Fems%2Fr5280_ems_5bc5670e-bc49-4b79-8083-78c9ee7389ed%22).)
