Title

  • Bills — Water Amendment Bill 2018; Third Reading
  • Water Amendment Bill 2018 - Third Reading - Pass the bill

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Anne Ruston</p>
  • <p>I move:</p>
  • <p class="italic">That this bill be now read a third time.</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2018-06-25.210.1) to pass the bill in the Senate. In parliamentary jargon, they voted to read the bill [a third time](https://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html). Since it had already passed in the House of Representatives, it will now become law.
  • ### What does this bill do?
  • The [bill](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;query=Id:legislation/billhome/r6112) was introduced to:
  • > *enable the Commonwealth Water Minister to direct the Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) to prepare an amendment to the Basin Plan 2012 (the Basin Plan) that is the same in effect as a [Basin Plan amendment](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/divisions/senate/2018-02-14/11) that has previously been disallowed, or taken to have been disallowed, by either House of Parliament.*

  • <p class="speaker">Barry O&#39;Sullivan</p>
