Senator Scott Ludlam
Scott Ludlam is an Australian Greens Senator for Western Australia. Elected in November 2007, Senator Ludlam is the fifth Greens Senator for Western Australia and currently shares the balance of power in the Senate with four other Greens and two independent Senators.
He is the Australian Greens' spokesperson for Broadband, Communications & the Digital Economy; Housing; Human Heritage; Legal Affairs; Local Government; Mining; Nuclear Issues; Public Transport; and Sustainable Cities.
Recognising Australia's need to switch to a low carbon economy, Senator Ludlam aims to ensure that all Western Australians benefit from the jobs and wealth created through harnessing our renewable resources and building sustainable communities.
In Parliament to date, Senator Ludlam's work has included introducing Private Senators Bills to repeal radioactive waste dump legislation, and to introduce a national recycling Container Deposit Scheme. He has also introduced Bills to repeal excessive aspects of Australia's anti-terrorism laws that compromise civil liberties and fair trials and to ensure that the Prime Minister cannot deploy troops without parliamentary approval.
He negotiated amendments to the National Rental Affordability Scheme to ensure that charitable organisations can play a part in providing low-cost rental properties and improved legislation to establish an Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Laws.
Using the Greens' balance of power, he helped secure $60 million funding for preserving heritage-listed properties and extended the availability of funding for local government in the economic stimulus package.
Senator Ludlam initiated the nation's first Senate Inquiry into Public Transport; an Inquiry into the issues surrounding Access to Justice; and successfully championed for public ownership of the National Broadband Network. He also helped establish a cross-party group on Nuclear Disarmament and is a member of the Australian Parliamentarians for Democracy in Burma.
A keen participant in the Senate Estimates process, Senator Ludlam is also a member of a number of Senate Committees including: Environment, Communication and the Arts; Joint Standing Committee on Treaties; both the Senate and Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs Defence and Trade; Legal and Constitutional Affairs; and the Select Committee into the National Broadband Network.
