(1)        allow eligible farmers the option of receiving the Farm Household Allowance supplement in a single $12,000 up-front payment; and

(2)        prioritise the resurrection of the COAG process it dismantled in 2013, in order to restore progress on the development of the National Drought Policy Reform Program”—
