RGA welcomes amendments

5 May 2016 8:42 AM -
The Ricegrowers' Association of Australia (RGA) has welcomed the passage of amendments to the Water Act through federal parliament.

RGA President Jeremy Morton said that both major political parties should be commended for taking a bipartisan approach to improving the water reform process.

"It's good to see that irrigators have been able to secure beneficial changes in a contentious policy area, despite it being in a highly charged political environment. It's taken time, but we'd rather get the bipartisan support we need than have it fall over by rushing a deal."
