Red Tape Commissioner urged to investigate Napthine govt anti-wind laws

Gough made us proud and confident. The fearmongering Coal-ition make us ashamed and insecure. It’s TIME.

RedTape2Friends of the Earth today hand delivered a submission to the Victorian Red Tape Commissioner calling for the Napthine government’s anti-wind farm laws to be investigated.

The Coalition introduced the world’s worst anti-wind farm laws in 2011. The laws ban wind farms in the windiest parts of the state. The submission sets out the adverse impact of the laws on businesses and the broader economy.

The Napthine government’s anti-wind farm laws have stalled the wind energy sector, costing Victoria projects worth $864 million, 402 construction jobs, and 64 ongoing jobs.

Yes 2 Renewables and community members have been making the case for the government to rip up these anti-wind farm laws from the first sitting day of the 2014 parliament.

After a year of inaction from Premier Napthine, we are here on the final sitting day of the year calling on the Red Tape Commissioner to investigate the government’s anti-wind farm laws.
