Campaspe shire backs sunset clause on ses funding bill


Queensland has backed a sunset clause on funding bills which will stop the state’s electricity utilities from g바카라etting new renewable subsidies, in a move that could stop major companies from going back to coal.

Shadow cabinet minister Ian Macdonald has welcomed the decision, but says it was needed to prevent an attempt by Labor to take the deal away from Queenslanders.

“The decision has been taken by the Queensland Premier that we’re going to implement the law as it stands,” he said.

The bill would prevent state utilities from adding renewable energy to their tariffs while they were being paid by the government to deliver them.

“The Queensland Government and its State Government will no longer use a specific clause in any energy infrastructure package to give preference to certain sources over others,” Premier Anjarvees.comnastacia Palaszczuk said.

The law change was expected to be put before cabinet next week, but was delayed after the Premier signed off on the legislation.

Labor’s energy spokesman Chris Bowen said the Premier has “stepped over the line” and the Government needs to take the legislation that was passed and work out the best way to ensure the future.

“If there’s going to be a change in any of those legislation that impacts a lot of energy suppliers, then I don’t know what the basis is for the change of government,” he said.

“There’s not going to be a full explanation as to how you’re going to be able to deliver what you’ve made such a commitment to and how that is not necessarily going to happen.”

Queensland’s utilities argue they must get a fair deal in terms of rates and prices, which means if they are no바카라t paid in full, they could be forced to drop a project they have planned or have it abandoned.
