Coalition, Labor in Murray Darling Deal


Australia's government has struck a deal with the Labor opposition to ensure sufficient amounts of water are returned to the Murray-Darling river system for environmental flows. A suite of new compliance measures sealed the agreement, with the opposition agreeing not to support a Greens push to block changes to the Murray-Darling Basin Plan in the Senate on Tuesday.
