Wa treasurer confirms charges reduced after carbon tax repeal
The Federal Government’s carbon tax repeal was passed into law today.
Treasurer Scott Morrison dSM 카지노escribed it as an historic achievement and was quick to tell Parliament he was happy to have been part of the process.
Senator Cory Bernardi, the Liberal Senator for the inner-west, accused the Government of misleading the public.
“It’s a great victory, I want to thank Senator Bernardi because I’ve known Senator Bernardi for quite a while,” he said.
“I’m just glad that this has all worked out because, we think, it’ll actually lower emissions and we can be the first to say that.”
Mr Morrison announced the repeal of the carbon tax in the budget speech on Monday, but his announcement was not confirmed until today’s morning announcement.
Senator Bernardi said: “It’s a victory not just for this Government; it’s also for a number of businesses who were hoping it would be rolled-back soon.”
‘It’s great for business’
The Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) carbon emissions reductions have improved with no negative impact on customers, the Government said.
AEMO said its forecasts show that while the rate of carbon dioxide emissions would increase after the repeal of the carbon tax, the emissions will decline.
Mr Morrison said the Government’s carbon taxes were being repealed because they were effective and worked.
“The carbon tax didn’t get me elected on the strength of my climate일산출장안마 change policies, it got me elected on the basis of what I believe are sound policy measures,” he said.
“[It] reduced pollution and increased prosperity and increased jobs and it went against what the big green groups had said on this subject.
“I think it’s great for business.”
T더나인카지노he carbon tax was imposed on a $7 per tonne price on October 2, 2012, after a public consultation.
The Government later introduced the carbon levy again under the Renewable Energy Target scheme, which provides some funding to encourage the development and production of renewable energy.
The carbon tax rates will be increased starting September 2017.
