The Federal Government’s chances of getting its Australian Building & Construction Commission legislation passed by a joint sitting of Parliament have been bolstered after the Liberal Party’s Jane Hume won the final Senate seat in Victoria. The Government needs 114 votes in a joint sitting, and it will commence negotiations with crossbenchers to support the bill. The final two Senate seats are expected to be decided shortly.
