Adam Bandt's Track Record

Adam_Bandt_2013Campaign_Photo_OFFICIAL.jpgMelbourne voters had a huge impact on the national agenda by voting Green. Adam has been our strong independent voice in the middle of Federal Parliament fighting for what matters:

  • Helping families with free dental care – 3.4 million children from low and middle income families will be able to access Medicare-funded dental care, and $500m has been invested in reducing waiting lists and training health workers (as a result of the Greens’ Labor Agreement).
  • Recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in an Act of Parliament, a pre-cursor to constitutional recognition (as a result of the Greens’ Labor Agreement).
  • Securing legislative safeguards against the privatisation of the NBN.
  • Ending taxpayer funding of big tobacco in the Future Fund.
  • Protecting children in remote communities from petrol sniffing.
  • Securing a Children’s Commissioner to stand up for children’s rights.
  • Securing additional funding for SBS and the ABC and restoring the Australian Music Radio AirPlay Project.
  • Action on sports betting and making sure kids don’t think live odds are another part of the game.
  • Strengthening the authority of Territorian Governments to make their own choices.
  • Increasing protection for fire fighters who contract cancer in the line of duty.
  • Establishing the Melbourne Employment Forum to enhance migrant employment opportunities.
  • Minimising the impacts of the Australian Building and Construction Commission so that building workers aren’t treated worse than criminals.
  • Securing rights for seafarers so they’re treated the same as other workers when they get sick.
  • Securing federal funding for JobWatch to provide legal support services for Melbourne workers.
  • Securing $20m to restore and develop our local heritage in the Royal Exhibition Building.
  • Progressing plans to construct High Speed Rail from Melbourne to Brisbane (also in the agreement).
  • Stopping the East West toll road from dividing our neighbourhoods and destroying what we love about our city.

Adam will continue to campaign on and stand up for what matters.
