On 18 April 2013, the Victorian Government introduced a Bill to change Victoria’s logging laws.
This Briefing Note explains how the Bill proposes to change the logging laws, and why the changes are of great concern to the Environment Defenders Office. It is expected that Parliament will debate whether to make these changes in the coming weeks.
If the Bill concerns you too, you should let your Government know: you could write a letter to your local member,to the Premier,or to other relevant Ministers.
