Title

  • Landholders' Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill 2013 - Second Reading - Read a second time
  • Landholders' Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill 2013 - Second Reading - Agree with the bill's main idea

Description

  • The majority voted against a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2014-03-06.13.15) to read the bill for a second time.(Read more about the stages that a bill must pass through [here](http://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html). ) This means that the majority of senators disagreed with the main idea of the bill and that it will not be considered any further.
  • The majority disagreed with the bill's main idea (in other words, they voted against reading the bill for a [second time](http://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html)). This means that the bill was rejected and won't be considered further.
  • _Background to the bill_
  • ### Main idea of the bill
  • The bill was introduced as a [private member's bill](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_member%27s_bill) by Greens Senator [Larissa Waters](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Larissa_Waters&mpc=Senate&house=senate). Its purpose was to provide landholders with the right to refuse to allow gas and coal mining activities by corporations on food producing land without prior written authorisation that follows the requirements in the bill.(Read more about the bill, including its explanatory memorandum, [here](http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=s940). View Senator Waters' second reading speech on youtube [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RhZAX2x9Xc). )
  • The [bill](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;query=Id:legislation/billhome/s940) would have given landholders the right to say no to gas and coal mining activities by corporations on food producing land, unless the corporations had written authorisation that followed particular requirements.
  • Senator Waters argued that efforts in Queensland and New South Wales to protect prime agricultural land have failed to protect farmers, which is why this bill is necessary.(Read more about what the Greens hoped to achieve with the bill on ABC News [here](http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-03-07/right-to-refuse-access-bill-voted-down/5305882).)
  • ### Background to the bill
  • Greens Senator [Larissa Waters](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/queensland/larissa_waters) introduced the bill as a [private member's bill](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_member%27s_bill). She believed that the bill was necessary because the efforts in Queensland and New South Wales to protect prime agricultural land had failed to protect farmers (see [ABC News](http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-03-07/right-to-refuse-access-bill-voted-down/5305882)). You can watch Senator Waters' second reading speech on [youtube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RhZAX2x9Xc).
