Summary

Edit

The majority voted against an amendment introduced by Greens Senator Nick McKim, which means it failed.

Senator McKim explained that:

This amendment would encourage and incentivise small businesses to invest into infrastructure and assets that would result in an energy-efficiency dividend for small businesses, which would bring Australia's emissions profile down as well as improve the bottom line of small businesses. It would also encourage and incentivise small businesses to reduce their use of fossil fuels and to fuel-switch from gas to electricity.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
