senate vote 2012-11-26#8

Title

Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?id=2012-11-26.208.1 motion] to read the bills a third time.
  • This means that the bills are passed in the Senate and, as they have already passed in the House of Representatives, they will now be sent to the Governor-General for royal assent so they can become laws.
  • The seven bills are:
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4895 Clean Energy Amendment (International Emissions Trading and Other Measures) Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4894 Clean Energy (Charges - Excise) Amendment Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4893 Clean Energy (Charges - Customs) Amendment Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4897 Excise Tariff Amendment (Per-tonne Carbon Price Equivalent) Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4898 Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (Import Levy) Amendment (Per-tonne Carbon Price Equivalent) Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4899 Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (Manufacture Levy) Amendment (Per-tonne Carbon Price Equivalent) Bill 2012]
  • * [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4896 Clean Energy (Unit Issue Charge - Auctions) Amendment Bill 2012]
  • ''Background to the bills''
  • The seven bills are designed to link Australia’s [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_pricing_in_Australia carbon pricing mechanism] to overseas emissions trading schemes from 1 July 2015, which is when the Australian carbon pricing mechanism is scheduled to transition to an emissions trading scheme.(For more information on the carbon pricing mechanism and how it works, please see the Clean Energy Regulator’s [http://www.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/Carbon-Pricing-Mechanism/About-the-Mechanism/Pages/default.aspx website].)
  • This means that Australian "liable entities" (a group that includes companies that emit a high level of greenhouse gases) will be able to trade carbon units with credible overseas emissions trading schemes such as the European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme. Such businesses will be able to use eligible international carbon units to meet up to 50 per cent of their annual liability.

Description

  • <p>The Aye-voters succeeded in passing a motion that the bills be read a third time.</p>
  • <p>This means that the bills are passed in the Senate and, as they have already passed in the House of Representatives, they will now be sent to the Governor-General for royal assent so they can become laws.</p>
  • <p>The seven bills are designed to link Australia’s carbon pricing mechanism to overseas emissions trading schemes from 1 July 2015, which is when the Australian carbon pricing mechanism is scheduled to transition to an emissions trading scheme.</p>
  • <p>This means that Australian "liable entities" (a group that includes companies that emit a high level of greenhouse gases) will be able to trade carbon units with credible overseas emissions trading schemes such as the European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme. Such businesses will be able to use eligible international carbon units to meet up to 50 per cent of their annual liability.</p>
  • <p></p>
  • <p>However, as a result of the Coalition's election victory in 2013, it is likely that the carbon pricing mechanism will be <a href="http://www.liberal.org.au/scrapping-carbon-tax-and-reducing-cost-living">abolished</a> before these amendments begin to operate.</p>
