It's International Day of People with Disability
November 30, 2022
Today, I would like to draw the house's attention to a couple of international days when we celebrate various matters. The first is the International Day of People with Disability, which is on 3 December, this Saturday. This day helps the community to focus on those people who live with disability. An important role we have as a society and also as a government is to ensure that we enable those people living with disability not only to engage fully in the community but also to live with dignity.
We're dropping the electric vehicle levy
November 1, 2022
I rise in support of this bill. Back in November 2021, the then Liberal state government passed its Motor Vehicles (Electric Vehicle Levy) Amendment Bill. That act introduced a levy on electric vehicles and a requirement for the Legislative Council to appoint a select committee into electric vehicles. The levy was based on a distance-based charge for electric vehicles as an addition for the registration of an electric vehicle. The levy also was to commence on or earlier than 1 July 2027, or when electric vehicle sales reached 30 per cent of the total new motor vehicle sales in South Australia.
