Title

  • Motions Murray-Darling Basin
  • Motions - Murray-Darling Basin - Moratorium

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>The question is that clause (b) of motion No. 115 be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of clause (b) of a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2019-09-11.125.1) introduced by SA Senator [Sarah Hanson-Young](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/sa/sarah_hanson-young) (Greens), which means it succeeded. Motions like these don't make any legal changes on their own but are politically influential because they represent the will of the Senate.
