What I'm fighting for

What I'm proud of

Secured $10 Million for Vehicle Manufacturing

Secured $10 Million for Vehicle Manufacturing

Rex advocated for and secured a $10 million investment to develop an Automotive Innovation Lab to support research and development for the automotive industry. This investment will go towards building important and meaningful facilities in South Australia that will grow automotive engineering and expand South Australia’s automotive aftermarket industry. Rebuilding and expanding Australia’s manufacturing sector, especially in South Australia, is one of Rex’s highest priorities
Prevented foreign takeover of Australian gas pipeline company

Prevented foreign takeover of Australian gas pipeline company

Rex successfully lobbied the Federal Government to block the takeover of Australian gas and electricity company APA Group by Chinese owned CKI Group in 2018. This $13 billion deal was not in Australia's national interest and would have further eroded sovereignty of Australian gas supplies. Rex is determined to protect Australia’s critical assets and services from foreign control and influence 
Stopped Unfair Regional Airport Tax

Stopped Unfair Regional Airport Tax

Rex’s tireless campaigning resulted in the Federal Government stopping their regional airport tax. Now, regional airport security charges will treat regional travellers fairly, no matter what destination they depart from. Regional travellers won’t be slugged with unfair fees and regional airlines are in a better position to continue to offer regional flights. This is great news for South Australian destinations including Mt Gambier, Kingscote, Whyalla, Port Lincoln and Roxby Downs 
Slashed Energy Prices

Slashed Energy Prices

Rex negotiated hard with the Federal Government and won new arrangements to deliver reduced gas prices for both Australian households and Australian businesses. Lower gas prices will have positive economy-wide effects and will also see electricity prices fall. Gas sets the electricity price in SA so this will help South Australians, who are paying the highest price for electricity in the nation    
Secured Extra Mental Health Services for Veterans

Secured Extra Mental Health Services for Veterans

Veterans are now able to access a broader range of essential mental health services through the Department of Veterans' Affairs, thanks to Rex’s advocacy. This change to eliminate barriers to access mental health care (for veterans) is a big win for our veterans suffering from mental health issues and provides essential support to their families
Passed Historic Whistleblower Protections

Passed Historic Whistleblower Protections

Rex played a leading role in passing world leading whistleblower protections, which will empower employees to speak out against unacceptable behaviour in their workplace. Whistleblowers are the failsafe for transparency and good governance. They’re crucial in uncovering wrongdoings when all else has failed, as revealed by the Banking Royal Commission. Whistleblowers are the canaries in the coalmine. We need to protect them so they can help protect us from corruption and wrongdoing by those in power, whether in government or big business
