Anthony Albanese’s new laws forcing Australia to cut carbon emissions by 43 per cent have passed the lower house with support from the Greens and teal independents.
The laws set a carbon emissions cut target of 43 per cent on 2005 levels by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050.
Coalition members opposed the bill except for Liberal MP Bridget Archer who crossed the floor to see it pass by 89 votes to 55.
The bill is being assessed by a Senate inquiry which is due to report on August 31, after which it will be debated and is expected to pass with support of the Greens and Independent David Pocock.
