News Headlines with Susie Thompson. King points out that today is walk to work day. Thompson notes today is the start of summer storm season and says people are reminded to clean up gutters an loose debris because storms cost $220m a year in NSW. King jokes that Nathan Tinkler could cover this. Thompson says there has been some locust hatchings in the Upper Hunter with farmers on high alert at the moment she says there is large aerial effort across NSW to try and prevent their movements. Thompson notes the issue around the Laman Street figs has been back in court and will be back in court again next Thursday. Thompson says another ongoing issue is the aircraft noise in Port Stephens and says Member for Paterson Bob Baldwin has hand delivered a letter to PM Gillard calling for urgent action. Thompson points out that Labor candidate Jim Arneman in the lead up to the election had said that Gillard had committed to lifting the aircraft noise plan. King mentions an interview yesterday with Adrian Piccoli, Opposition Spokesperson on Education with Craig Baumann bringing him here in regards to Medowie High School. Thompson notes that Piccoli says the NSW Government has a document he is calling on them tom release regarding an inquiry into the need for and he wants this released before he is willing to commit outright. She says Piccoli has offered a commitment to the Aspect Autism School at Shortland that funding will continue for that. King says he bets nothing is decided on Tillegra Dam until after the election. Thompson asks how much are the reports on this costing? King says he noticed that Kevin Young said he had readjusted the price down on the cost of the dam. King says it gets bit mysterious when you look into the cost.

Barnett says they will spend the money on better services, but the revenue of WA depends on volatile factors such as iron ore prices. Mills asks Barnett if he is fed up about the blow out in the indoor stadium cost. Barnett calls it a 'nightmare', and is costing about twice as much as it should have. He is concerned about the delays, but thinks it will be a 'fantastic facility'. Mills asks if it is making him 'gun shy' about teh outdoor stadium. Barnett says it is not, but they will make sure they design and cost the stadium properly before construction starts. Mills asks about late night trading in WA. Barnett replies the referendum was not in the interest of WA and was a 'politicised event'. He is pleased that there is the choice for weeknight shopping.

Keneally says this is a result of extensive consultation undertaken with the community. Levi says he spoke to the NSW Business Chamber President yesterday about the Ten Big Ideas to get the Central Coast Moving, and the buses were one of them. Levi says another was a stand alone health area. Levi asks if making a bus service where buses come every 15-20 minutes is possible. Keneally says it is, saying 10 new buses will be coming on to replace older buses as they're wheelchair accessible. Keneally says there used to be 13 services connecting Bateau Bay and Gosford on a Sunday, and now there will be 56, so buses will running every 15 minutes. Keneally says this is a great expansion. Keneally says in Sydney they've started rolling out the metro-bus network, and this service is very popular so will be rolled out in other areas. Levi says Dr Ian Charlton, GP, had a transport plan similar to Keneally's saying he said bus transport has health benefits. Keneally says many of Charlton's suggestions have been incorporated, and she welcomes more of his ideas. Charlton says today is Walk to Work Day, and catching a bus is a great way to incorporate walking into your day.

Nick Calacouras from the NT News, Travel Agent Xana Kamitsis and Andrew Ramsay from NT Cricket talk about federal politics. Guests talks about Walk to Work Day and note that none of them have walked to work today. Calacouras says that the media were the real winners in the new parliament, not Labor or the Liberals, though the Greens had the most talked about issues. Calacouras highlights that everyone is talking about euthanasia and gay marriage again. Kamitsis notes that both sides of parliament looked pretty weak but the minority government means that important social issues will no longer be ignored. Ramsay adds that Labor have not set up their legislative agenda yet and issues such as tax reform will most likely still be dealt with, but the Greens have so far been the miost vocal. Ramsay says that Speaker Harry Jenkins was clearly the winner of the week, though Labor did well with the Deputy Speaker manoeuvre. He comments that he also has fears for the efficiency of the new parliament after Liberal MP Chris Pyne was kicked out of question time. Ramsay comments that Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd and PM Julia Gillard will have to curb their travel plans because a decision may be made while they're absent. Calacouras mentions that Compton was talking to Labor MP Warren Snowdon yesterday, who cut the interview short to return to parliament and Nigel Scullion missed a vote last year because he was locked in a stairwell. Kamitsis articulates that every vote is incredibly important now. Kamitsis indicates that the Opposition will be doing all they can to force another election as soon as possible, and Australia would like a second round like the AFL Grand Final. Calacouras adds that this may not work in the Opposition's favour because they haven't been collaborative in the new paradigm. Calacouras notes that the NSW state election is in February and Labor does not want an election that coincides with this. Calacouras highlights that this will be a difficult campaign for NSW Labor.
