🌳🌳 GREENS REITERATE SUPPORT FOR STEEL INDUSTRY, BUT NOT COAL 🌚⚙️
The New South Wales Greens have reaffirmed their support for the region's steel industry, despite promising to phase out coal mining within the next 10 years.
The policy has drawn criticism with concerns it would lead to job losses in the region if implemented.
The party's candidate for Keira, Kaye Osborn said the policy does not apply to metallurgical coal used to make steel.
But she said the mining of coal from beneath water catchments should also be phased out.
