Posted on 2 November 2021
Jenny Leong is one of twenty-eight MPs from across the NSW Parliament who will support new legislation to legalise voluntary assisted dying, the highest number of co-sponsors to a bill in the history of any Australian parliament.
In response to rental horror stories of extreme mould and reports of growing rental unaffordability, NSW Greens Housing spokeperson and Member for Newtown Jenny Leong MP is pushing ahead with the Greens Bill to cap rents, end unfair no grounds evictions and require all rental properties to be waterproof and mould-free. The Bill also includes specific measures for flood impacted areas including banning evictions for 12 months.
Newtown Greens MP and Housing spokesperson Jenny Leong has called on the NSW Government to investigate acquiring existing privately owned boarding houses, to bring them up to a liveable standard, and run them as safe, secure, affordable and publicly owned social housing.
