Sporting Club Funding

That the Senate—
(i) that local sporting clubs bring significant social and health benefits to communities, and
(ii) with concern, the South Australian Government's proposal to reduce funding for local sporting clubs by $3.5 million through cuts to the Community Recreation and Sports Facilities Program; and
(b) calls on the South Australian Premier to reverse his Government's decision and reinstate the funding in the 2013-14 Budget.
I will not call a division, but I would like it noted for the record that the Greens supported this motion and the opposition and the government did not.
