Barry O’Farrell can’t duck the shooters | #NSWpol #AusUnions

THE state’s infrastructure projects have been put in jeopardy because of a stalemate over duck hunting.

Laws allowing the $4 billion leasing of Port Botany and Port Kembla, which would help fund major road and rail projects in NSW, are off the agenda in the upper house after a breakdown in negotiations with the powerful Shooters and Fishers Party.

Crossbench MPs Robert Borsak and Robert Brown were set to support the leasing bill this week but were told the government was stalling on a deal to allow the Game Council to issue licences to kill game birds on private land.
