Description

  • <p class='motion-notice motion-notice-truncated'>Long debate text truncated.</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2018-08-15.168.2) to disallow two regulations, which means it failed. These regulations address the negative impacts of air pollution from certain products on human and environmental health.
  • This motion was moved by South Australian Senator [Cory Bernardi](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/sa/cory_bernardi), [who explained that](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2018-08-15.168.2):
  • > *In essence, they [the regulations] are the carbon tax on whipper-snippers, lawnmowers and outboard engines that were identified at the very passage of this bill and yet they were blithely championed through and sponsored through in the absence of a great deal of information and supported by people who said they had nothing whatsoever to do with the climate agreement reached in Paris. They were wrong.*
  • ### Motion text
  • > *That the [Product Emissions Standards (Excise) Charges Regulations 2018](https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00762), made under the Product Emissions Standards (Excise) Charges Act 2017, and the [Product Emissions Standards (Customs) Charges Regulations 2018](https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2018L00761), made under the Product Emissions Standards (Customs) Charges Act 2017, be disallowed.*
