Independent Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has welcomed the news that a deal has finally been struck between the Liberal and Labor Parties with regards to a new Renewable Energy Target Scheme. “Like all Tasmanians, I strongly support renewable energy. I’ve made many speeches in parliament and had many meetings with Minister Hunt and other federal government ministers with regard to RET. I congratulate Greg for his efforts. ``I’ve worked hard since the day I was elected to create a new RET scheme that exempted our big employers and manufactures from paying unfair RET penalties worth tens of millions of dollars a year.
