Government ammendments to NDIS Bill

The Gillard Government is today introducing amendments to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Bill, that respond to feedback from extensive consultations with people with disability, their families and carers, and with states and territories. The NDIS will provide peace of mind to people with a disability, their families and carers, and to Australians who may in the future acquire a significant and permanent disability. The NDIS will give people with disability choice and control over the care and support they receive, rather than exposing them to the cruel lottery that currently exists. The Government's amendments also respond directly to submissions made to the inquiry by the Senate Community Affairs Legislation Committee, which will table its report this week.
