Santos’s multimillion-dollar CSG royalty loophole exposed

Jeremy Buckingham MLC

This week I exposed an outrageous loophole allowing Santos to avoid paying $3.68 million in royalties on 4,250,938 gigajoules of coal seam gas. This is gas they have already produced from the Pilliga and supplied to Wilga Park Power Station over the past four years. The Greens are calling for this CSG production by stealth to be immediately halted.

Why reward animal cruelty?

Mehreen Faruqi MLC

Call the Premier today to say "no" to greyhound racing. The NSW Government will give $500,000 meant for community projects to the greyhound racing and gambling industry as prize money. Barely a week goes by without deaths on track, someone caught drugging their dog or extreme animal cruelty.

The Greens have been campaigning for more than a year about record levels of youth unemployment in Shoalhaven.

NSW public transport - we deserve better!

Jenny Leong, MP for Newtown

We love public transport when it gets us where we need to go, but the Liberals in NSW are privatising it and washing their hands of the responsibility to make it work. Help us fix it.

Tell Coles to ban the bag – again!

Jamie Parker, MP for Balmain

Coles has backed down from its commitment to remove single-use plastic bags from stores. 30% of the world’s turtles and 90% of seabird species have ingested plastic debris, so we simply can’t afford any more corporate environmental cowardice. Tell Coles CEO John Durkan to set a date to ban the bag – again.
