A PUSH to have flying foxes declared the cane toads of the sky has been killed off by an LNP-dominated State Government committee.
Katter's Australian Party member Shane Knuth introduced the Flying Fox Control amendment Bill to have bats declared a pest species so landholders would be able to control them without penalty.
But the Agriculture, Resources and Environment Committee chaired by Lockyer MP Ian Rickuss, recommended against the Bill being passed.
The Newman Government has already reintroduced damage mitigation permits for local governments and landholders, which allow the shooting of flying foxes to protect crops.
Mr Knuth's Bill was among 62 brought before State Parliament under the Newman Government this year.
In the last sitting week alone, 12 Bills were introduced, two of which were passed in the three-day session, along with seven other pieces of legislation.
Among the new laws enacted were tougher penalties for serious firearms offences, the introduction of boot camps for young offenders, and more rights allowing government to demand "appropriate deletions" in Right to Information releases.
Legislation referred to committees included harsher penalties for hoons, a new "grooming" offence for child sex predators and greater scope for authorities to seize the assets of suspected drug dealers.
That legislation is currently before the Legal Affairs and Community Safety Committee.
