Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2013-12-05.43.2) to agree to the bill as amended previously.
  • They will now vote on whether to adopt their report and send it with the bill back to the House of Representatives for their consideration.(That division is available [here](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/division.php?date=2013-12-09&number=3&house=senate). )
  • _Background to Bill_
  • On 22 October 2013, the Abbott Government announced that it will raise the debt ceiling from $300 billion to $500 billion.(Read more about this in the media [here](http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/treasurer-joe-hockey-announces-debt-limit-to-increase-to-500-billion-20131022-2vyog.html). ) This was following the August 2013 [Pre-Election Economic and Fiscal Outlook](http://www.treasury.gov.au/PublicationsAndMedia/Publications/2013/PEFO-2013) which reported that the Treasurer's standing borrowing authority would reach the $300 billion limit by December 2013.
  • The purpose of the increase to the debt ceiling is to "provide stability and certainty to financial markets about the Government's ability to issue sufficient debt to manage its budget".(See the [explanatory memorandum](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/download/legislation/ems/r5127_ems_dfe1d5b2-bd7c-424c-afc8-efdd37c905b1/upload_pdf/388079.pdf;fileType=application%2Fpdf) (106 KB).
