Clean Energy Legislation submission

08 August 2013

The Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education has released draft legislation to start emissions trading on 1 July 2014, rather than 1 July 2015.

The draft bills make amendments to the Clean Energy Act 2011, the Australian National Registry of Emissions Units Act 2011, the Fuel Tax Act 2006, and the Excise Tariff Act 1921. The changes are predominantly technical in nature.

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) supports the amendments to the Clean Energy Legislation. We understand the amendments to the Fuel Tax Act 2006 do not extend the carbon price to fuel used in heavy vehicles on road.
