The election may be over, but the Left can still influence policy. The fight for progressive change is not always glamorous, so (as I’ve previously argued) it’s time to weigh in on mundane but important government consultations and Select Committees.
Select Committees are now open for submissions again. For a full list of what’s currently on, click here. There aren’t many bills of interest to lefties at present (a couple of treaty settlements and a bill giving custodial duties for Te Reo to a new government body), but now is a good time to get your head around making a submission, if you haven’t done so already.
The official guide on making submissions is available here.
That’s all for now! I’m currently working on a couple of big posts, hence the relative quiet on the blog. I will hopefully get them up online in the next day of two.
