FOR – Change to Chair of National Disability Insurance Scheme Joint Committee

Greens Senator Larissa Waters proposed an amendment to a Government motion, seeking to change the chair of the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme to be a member of a minor party or an independent.

Senator Waters proposed the amendment in the hopes of having Senator Jordan Steele-John, whom she described as "a proud disabled man", chair the committee. The amendment was voted down with 37 against and 13 in favour.

Senator Pocock voted YES.
