MORE ACTION NEEDED: Nationals Member for Eastern Victoria Melina Bath, and John Gommans, Yarragon, who formerly owned Gippy Goat Cafe. Ms Bath attempted to introduce amendments to increase proposed fines for farm trespassing.

New laws to deter trespassing on farms have passed through the Legislative Council, introducing on-the-spot fines of more than $1000 for an individual and more than $8000 for an organisation.
