Today I spoke to Susan McDonald, Senator for Queensland, about the senate inquiry into reef regulations. Listen below to our discussion. 

The public hearing was announced last year after reef regulations were passed by the state government in a bid to improve the quality of runoff water to the Great Barrier Reef. Originally Cairns, Townsville, and Brisbane had been chosen as locations for the public hearing allowing local farmers to easily attend but due to COVD-19, the schedule was changed the inquiry is still ongoing.
