Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the devastating impact that further Vegetation Management Laws and restrictions will have on the ability of Queensland landholders to sustainably manage vegetation regrowth/thickening and fodder harvesting of Mulga, and the economic downturn further vegetation laws and restrictions will have on local businesses and communities.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to recognise the need for Queensland landholders to be able to sustainably manage regrowth/thickening and the importance of using Mulga as a fodder, and not impose any further restrictions through legislation/regulation on fodder harvesting or through other Self Assessable Codes, legislation or regulation.
