Ecan Transition Bill Passes

by Desk Editor on Thursday, May 5, 2016 — 8:54 PM

The Environment Canterbury (Transitional Governance Arrangements) Bill has passed its final reading.

Ayes 62 (National 59, ACT 1, Maori Party 2)

Noes 59 (Labour 32, Greens 14, NZ First 12, United Future 1)

The vote had to be amended due to an error made during the casting of a proxy vote on behalf of Peter Dunne, which originally saw him in favour of the bill despite his opposition to it.
