  • Victoria must toughen up political donation laws

    Victorian Greens acting leader Sam Hibbins says Victoria needs to toughen up donation laws to restore public confidence in political processes.

     "Both Liberal and Labor are missing in action when it comes to political donations reform.

     “We still don’t know who bankrolled the 2014 election and won’t until the AEC reports are released in February 2016.

  • Vicforests immune from prosecution

    Greens spokesperson for forests Samantha Dunn MP says,"the Labor government has confirmed that it is "actively considering" the extension of a law that allows Vicforests to engage in anti-competitive conduct."

    "This immunity allows Vicforests to set a price for native forest logs that is designed to undercut the commercial plantation sector."

    "Vicforests appears to be the only Victorian company that has a green light to do things that would otherwise attract criminal liability."
