Stand up for the River Murray
The extraordinary fish kills over summer and the report of the South Australian Royal Commission into the Murray Darling Basin are dire warnings about the health of the Basin.
We’ve seen past examples of Liberal governments ignoring problems until it’s too late – it can’t happen again.
Labor is taking urgent action by introducing a Bill that will repeal Barnaby Joyce’s cap on water buy-backs.
Labor’s Bill will help ensure irrigators and state governments deliver projects that return water to the river and provide flexibility to give the Basin the water it needs if they fail to do so.
From water theft to fish kills – enough is enough.
