Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport

On 8 February 2012, the names of the Senate standing committees on Rural Affairs and Transport were changed back to: the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Legislation Committee and the Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee.

On 29 March 2017, the order of the Senate of 8 November 2016, which related to the hearings for the 2017-18 Budget estimates, was amended to insert cross portfolio estimates hearings on Murray Darling Basin Plan matters.

On 27 July 2022, the water portfolio was allocated to the Senate Standing Committees on Environment and Communications and therefore the Murray Darling Basin Plan matters cross-portfolio day has also moved to the Senate Standing Committees on Environment and Communications.
