Palaszczuk plans to reverse LNP's political donation laws

THE first piece of legislation the Palaszczuk government plans to introduce to parliament will see the LNP's donation declaration threshold increase reversed, returning it to $1000 from $12,800.

The LNP hitched the state's donation declaration limit to the federal limit in late 2013.

Any donations of less than $12,800 did not have to be declared, meaning attendees at political fundraisers where individual tickets could cost up to $10,000 could remain anonymous.

Independent MP Peter Wellington, who handed the party power with his support, fought against the laws when passed in November 2013 and made reversing the legislation a key election promise.

The legislation will be backdated to when the LNP changed the law.
