I move:

That the Senate—

(a) supports the Tasmanian Government's Climate Smart strategy which aims to achieve 100 per cent renewable production and a 35 per cent cut in emissions on 1990 levels by 2020; and

(b) condemns the Abbott Government's attempts to repeal the carbon price, which will remove up to $70 million per year from Hydro Tasmania and dividend payments to the Tasmanian budget.

The question is that notice of motion No. 48, moved by Senator Milne, be agreed to.
