Honourable Member of the Legislative Council,
The Membership of TAP into a Better Tasmania respectfully request that you will reject the Pulp Mill Assessment Amendment Act 2014 .
As a non-party political community group, we are opposed to the Act because
It corrupts the proper relationship between the legislative and judicial arms of Government.
It turns the legislature into an instrument of offshore business interests instead of an instrument of the will of the people of Tasmania.
It exposes Tasmania to unforseen and potentially endless litigation at public expense.
We appeal to the Legislative Council to uphold the dignity of the Tasmanian Parliament in the face of this attempt to debase our lawmaking process.
President of TAP into a Better Tasmania
