2019 News
2019-07 MINISTER'S PROPOSAL TO REMOVE VICTORIA'S OPTION FOR MULTI-COUNCILLOR WARDS:
The PRSA's Victoria-Tasmania Branch has written to all Victoria's MPs urging them to retain the above option in Victoria's proposed Local Government Bill 2019, which unfortunately seeks to remove it entirely.

 Unlike the Government's Local Government Bill 2018, which lapsed, the 2019 Bill has not been disclosed online, nor has there been a provision for submissions, which although invited until 31 July 2019, are not to be placed on the Local Government website, as had been done for the 2018 Bill.

See 'the most regressive electoral reform (?) from Labor in decades', and PRSAV-T Inc's submission.

2019-06 MRS ALISON HARCOURT AO:
A member of the Proportional Representation Society of Australia since 1982 - as mentioned in her entry on the Order of Australia website - Mrs Alison Harcourt has been appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

She was given the award for "distinguished service to mathematics and computer science through pioneering research and development of integer linear programming".
