The water mining legislation is broken, change the legislation.

November 15, Lismore, Tweed Water Alliance are convening a meeting of key people with a view to thinking through the mess of legislation and regulation around groundwater.

“We are keen to protect our groundwater stocks and wind back this ridiculously greedy industry. Of course we will let you know the outcome and urge you to vote accordingly.”

We have invited:
Janelle Saffin, Member for Lismore.
Geoff Provest, Member for Tweed.
Tamara Smith, Member for Ballina.
Sue Higginson, Environmental lawyer, consultant and former Greens candidate for Lismore.
Austin Curtin, farmer and former Nationals candidate for Lismore.
Katie Milne, Mayor, Tweed Shire.
David Wright, Mayor, Ballina Shire.
Scott Sledge, Northern Rivers Guardians.
Jem Hallinan, Environmental Defender’s Office.
Geoff Provest has already declined because of a prior engagement and we are trying to change that.
The TWA executive (of course) as proponents of the initiative, Denise White, Pam Veness, Muffy (Pamela) Smith, Trevor White, Pat Miller.

Janelle Saffin will be the principal proponent of this in the NSW parliament.

We are very keen to have the initiative supported across parties and across legislative boundaries.
