Description

  • The majority voted against an [amendment](http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2006-09-07.12.1) introduced by Labor Senator [Kim Carr](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Kim_Carr&mpc=Senate&house=senate).
  • It would have amended a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?id=2006-09-07.11.2) introduced by Liberal Senator [Chris Ellison](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Chris_Ellison&mpc=Senate&house=senate) by replacing the words:
  • _(a) [That the Senate] recognises that local government is part of the governance of Australia, serving communities through locally-elected councils;_
  • with the words:
  • _(a) [That the Senate] supports a referendum to extend constitutional recognition to local government in recognition of the essential role it plays in the governance of Australia;_
  • Background
  • There are three tiers of government in Australia: federal, state and local.(Read more about these divisions [here](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_governments). ) Currently, the [Australian Constitution](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Constitution) does not mention [local governments](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_government_in_Australia). In 1988, a [referendum](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referendums_in_Australia) was held to amend the Constitution so that it recognises local governments but it was unsuccessful.(Read more about the referendum [here](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_referendum,_1988_%28Local_Government%29).)
