What's happened to the Tasmanian Forests Agreement?
While the flow of taxpayers' money to the logging industry from the 2012 Tasmanian Forests Agreement was guaranteed, there was no legislated up-front conservation outcomes. In September 2014, the Hodgman government announced $7 million would be available to buy loggers back into the industry. No other Australian workers have had more multi-million dollar payouts to stay in, exit, and stay in than Tasmanian loggers. In August 2014 the Tasmanian Forest Bill was passed by the Tasmanian Parliament, allowing logging in 147 reserves (454,607 hectares) and 407 conservation areas (657,481 hectares) and making it more difficult for new reserves to be created in the future. It abandons 400,000 hectares of forest earmarked for protection under the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, with the land converting to Forestry Tasmania ownership in six years. The objectives of Conservation Areas and Regional Reserves will be changed to include logging for specialty species. The TFA: Now dead When the Tasma
