Key upper house crossbenchers have rejected claims by shadow treasurer Chris Bowen that Labor will have a mandate for tax reform if it wins the federal election. Centre Alliance senator Stirling Griff contends that Labor will only have a mandate if it gains a majority in the Senate. Griff opposes Labor’s proposal to abolish cash refunds for excess dividend imputation credits, although he says Centre Alliance may be willing to negotiate regarding changes to the negative gearing regime. One Nation leader Pauline Hanson also opposes the franking credit reforms.
