JUST A REMINDER
I will continue to push for lowering the P-plate driving age, continue to back the recommendations of the parliamentary committee that said it was time we fell into step with the rest of the nation, time we looked to reduce the social and rural isolation this outdated law continues to perpetuate and time to reduce the burden that is unfairly placed on regional and rural teenagers. #buildingabetterbenambra

Your problem is Bill that you are dealing with Victorians. They have NEVER wanted to be the same as Australians. They have always wanted to have different rules and standards from the other States. It seems to be some kind of 'we know best' and 'all the other States should fall into line with us" attitude which is some form of superiority complex. So your chances of getting this done will only be with the Victorians kicking and screaming in defiance. Living on the border means that this hatred of other States is less obvious. Perhaps it takes someone from another part of Australia to recognise it. BTW can you imagine what would happen if the AFL Grand Final was between the two Sydney based teams? Victoria would go into mourning that "their" game had been stolen. They believe that teams from other States are only there to be beaten and to roll the money and glory back to Victoria where it belongs.

It's time to give victims a voice.

Today I held the inaugural meeting of the Victims of Crime Justice Reference Group. They're an inspirarional group of survivors, whose experiences will help shape my policy into the future.

It's time to put the rights of victims and their families ahead of the rights of criminals.

This is a big step in the right direction.

Please Mr Guy. Why does a farmer who scared off a knife wielding home invader have his guns taken off him. Victoria has been know as the crime state for a while now and our current crop of leaders and opposition don't have the fortitude to do what it takes to send a message to crims. More bail for Apex members and more immigration from lawless countries should fix it yeah?

Just another example of an out of touch government. People in the country know the dangers of unsealed roads and drive to the conditions. The fact we have to put up with potholes in major arterial roads should be the focus here, not setting up speed limits that are impossible to police. #dansnotourman ... See MoreSee Less

It's called infantilisation of the community. We are apperently incapable of driving to conditions or even on the highways (we need rope barriers costing millions, while small, rural communities struggle for desparately needed infrastructure). We need overhead monstrosities because we don't have the time to stop at a level crossing. I could go on, poor little snowflakes needs a nanny state to guide them.

There is so much wire rope barrier going up instead of fixing the roads. Makes me wonder if Nino Napoli's uncle works at VicRoads and has a mate with a wire rope factory.

Typical answer for the twits who are out of touch with the people stick up a new speed limit that will fix it and it looks like we've achieved something. Instead of bailing the rich out how about spending more money on updating our ageing infrastructure , spend more on the homeless the elderly things that will benefit all of us 😡

Why should country people be nannied...just leave speed limits alone & fix the roads up...more revenue raising...country people are not second class.....

Trains have to go extra slow, due to pot holes, roads speed reduced due to pot holes, what else do you expect from Doppy Dan? Much easier than giving us money to fix. Probably just as well he dosnt control the airports.

Yeah but its safer because of the rumble strips down the middle!

Its what labor does. And it increases the road toll.

Now there a good place that money he spent on facebook can go to, fixing the pot hole. Facebook or pot holes. Facebook or pot holes. I know the correct answer ?????

And $280000 To Buy Facebook Friends !

they do exactly the same in Italy and then give you a ticket if you speed just over 30km/hr...ahahahh

I hope he doesn't drive the hume fwy to Albury, dirt roads are in better condition

How many cops do you come across on dirt roads?

Unfortunately true!

When is this Government going to give Benambra a break?

In August the Andrews Government produced 200 press releases – from $13.4 million for Bentleigh Secondary College to $17,000 for the arts in Nathalia. It also handed out $825,000 for a solar battery project, $250,000 for a Chinese Dragon for Bendigo’s Easter Parade and $320,000 for a caravan park in Dimboola to name just a few.

Benambra was included in one – $130,000 as an offset for the 150 jobs to be lost at Murray Goulburn’s Kiewa milk factory.

Looking to support a growing sport?

Ryan Dodd is looking to raise some money for an Albury Touch Football Association rep side to go to the State Cup in Port Macquarie. The mixed team known as the Albury Brumbies was the first to represent the Border at the titles three years ago and last year made it to the decider in their division.

Ryan’s brother plays for the St George-Illawarra Dragons in the NRL and has provided Euan Aitken’s playing jersey, signed by this year’s squad for auction. It is a silent auction and you can place bids by texting Ryan on 0404 413 542. Albury Thunder Junior Rugby League Wodonga Storm Senior Rugby League Club

What a whirlwind August … two parliamentary sitting weeks, a hugely successful Border Leadership Forum, Sam Kekovich and Senator Jane Hume on the Border, spent time in Beechworth, at the Caravan and Camping show in Wodonga, opened the Hume Bank – the first specialty tenancy in Wodonga Place and even woke the dragon to launch the Dragon boat racing season.
