The KAP are calling on drought effected producers from across Queensland to assist with the case for a reconstruction board.
A number of committee hearings will be held in regional Queensland in the coming weeks to give rural residents the opportunity to speak in support of the KAP's Rural and Regional Adjustment (Development Assistance) Amendment Bill.
"Debt it one of the biggest burdens our producers are shouldering, there is a clear need for an alternative loaning facility," Member for Mount Isa Rob Katter said.
KAP has reserved its opinion on the Queensland Government's latest bikie law proposals.
"We have not seen the full detail of the proposed legislation, and at this stage we are yet to come to a position on it," Mr Katter said.
"When the Newman laws were introduced at a minute to midnight we were angry and had deep concerns that this would do more harm than good to rights of the individual in Queensland."
THE Queensland KAP Crossbench Members are not backing down on the fight for fair taxi laws.
Member for Mount Isa Rob Katter and member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth have committed to action for the taxi industry and consumer protections following their concerns about the regulation changes to permit ride share services introduced by the Palaszczuk government.
"The battle is not lost, there are still steps we can take to ensure this truly is a fair playing field," Rob Katter said.
"Lowering the bar will lead to lower standards for all," says KAP State Leader and Member for Mt Isa Rob Katter who holds grave concerns for the future of the taxi industry following the Queensland Government's announcement.
In response to the Premier's announcement of a $100 million industry assistance package reported on earlier today, Mr Katter believes safety and fairness must remain the priority before any changes take place.
KAP Member for Kennedy Bob Katter is humbled by the result of the 2016 Federal election that has returned him to Kennedy with more than an 11 per cent swing.
“I thank the hundreds of great Australians who stood outside in the wind, hot sun and in some places cold handing out our How to Vote Cards passionately for Kennedy and the future of their country; and everyone who voted. And I thank my brilliant strategy team who got our key messages out there.
Drawing parallels to the United Kingdom's recent 'Brexit' from the European Union, the Katter's Australian Party candidate for Herbert Colin Dwyer has called on North Queensland to seek its own independence.
The self-styled 'North Quexit' would see the state of Queensland split in order to improve federal representation for Northern Queenslanders, something Mr Dwyer believes the region desperately needs.
