COAG: what happened
4BC News: Prime Minister Julia Gillard has struck a deal with the state and territory leaders on a plan she says could save households $250 a year on their power bills.
As the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting wrapped up in Canberra on Friday, Ms Gillard also secured signed agreements with Victoria, South Australia, NSW, Tasmania and the ACT on launch sites for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Western Australia and Queensland signed a broader agreement to "learn" from the launch sites' development and implementation, but made no further commitments.
Key outcomes from the Council of Australian Governments Leaders Meeting
Electricity prices: agreement on reforms to limit future electricity price rises rule changes to ensure no more over-investment, or "gold plating", in networks establishment of Consumer Challenge Panel to represent consumer's interests in electricity regulator determinations extra $23 million in federal funding over four years to beef up the Australian Energy Regulator states, territories to report back to COAG next year on ways to give consumers a better deal states, territories commit to improving access for consumers for innovative technology such as smart meters, time-of-use pricing to manage usage agreement on action to help reduce electricity use during peak periods
National Disability Insurance Scheme: NSW, Victoria, SA, Tasmania and ACT leaders sign intergovernmental agreement for first stage launch sites in their jurisdictions all state and territory governments sign agreement to work together to "learn" from the development and implementation of the first stage first stage co-operation will set the platform for work on the policy for a full scheme from 2018 creation of Standing Council on Disability Reform from January 1
Royal Commission into child sexual abuse: federal government to bear the costs work on terms of reference continues governments working on draft Letters Patent before end 2012
Schools reform: leaders agree to discuss development of a proposed National Plan for School Improvement and funding at COAG in 2013
Mental health: leaders reaffirm commitment to national mental health reform, 10-year roadmap released
Royal succession: leaders repeat support for changes to rules of Royal Succession, following the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy announcement allow for succession regardless of gender remove bar on succession for marriage to a Catholic
It is good to see that COAG is no longer a rubber stamp for the needs of the wasteful illegal Labor federal government which is full of union sleaze bags. With the huge shift of politcal change in the states in removing with the reatest margins ever witnessed in history the filth of the labor crook nepotistic state governments, so now they will not pay or fund Juliars madness and crap anymore this is what sent the states including Qld broke. Bob I suggest that you deal with the real issues instead of the spurious untruths you rant with garbage just as hollow and deceptive as Gillards droning moaning in parliment.mick Saturday 8 December, 2012 - 10:16 AM
Endless terrible news for the gloom and doomers this week. It just keeps coming doesn't it.
So many agreements signed today with the States that will just continue to improve the lot of Australians young, old and infirm for decades.
Never mind loonies, just keep making up stuff about aircraft carriers, zombies, events of 20 years ago, supposed bad economic conditions, shrill voices etc to keep yourselves in the ever deepening darkness that surrounds you.
The rest of us are doing quite well and having a good time - no thanks to your good selves and CanLie.Bob Lord Friday 7 December, 2012 - 5:41 PM
