States reject leaked NDIS proposal they say would increase federal control

Documents from a meeting of state and commonwealth disability ministers leaked on Monday showed proposals that would give the federal minister more power by removing the need for governance and compliance issues to be agreed by all parties.

Under the proposal, the NDIS Act would be amended so that enacting changes in key areas such as eligibility for the scheme and the content of individual plans would require consultation with states, rather than consensus.
