School transport assistance program for students with a disability in Queensland

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Mark Ryan MP

CABOOLTURE SOUTH QLD 4510

Total Signatures - 15016

Sponsoring Member: Hon Kate Jones MP

Posting Date: 1/11/2016

Tabled Date: 1/11/2016

Responded By: Hon Kate Jones MP on 1/12/2016

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that:


(1) from 1 January 2020, the responsibility for the current school transport assistance program for students with a disability in Queensland transfers to the Turnbull LNP Federal Government under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS); and
(2) many Queenslanders are concerned by the lack of information from the Federal Government's National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) regarding the future of the school transport assistance program for students with a disability.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to support the Queensland Government's efforts in lobbying the Turnbull LNP Federal Government to guarantee that the current school transport assistance program for students with a disability in Queensland will continue to be available under the NDIS from 1 January 2020.
