The first two official sitting weeks of Parliament saw the introduction of new legislation including the Environmental Protection (Greentape Reduction) and other Legislation Amendment Bill which I was honoured to introduce to the House. World Environment Day was also celebrated during the first week of June with the announcement of the LNP’s Everyone’s Environment grants. These grants are designed to support community groups who want to take action to improve their local environment. This program covers a wide range of environment initiatives including tree planting, land restoration and community and waterway clean-ups. The grants are available from 1 July and more information can be found online at www.ehp.qld.gov.au.
