Australia State's drought co-ordinator leaves job after less than a year
Morrison hints at new drought-relief money
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed a fresh round of drought relief is under cabinet consideration, with an announcement expected soon. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has foreshadowed fresh drought relief for farmers and communities under pressure from the extended dry spell. The federal government is expected to announce additional funding amid pressure from the Nationals and the National Farmers' Federation to help drought-stricken areas."We're considering further measures and have been for some time," Mr Morrison told reporters in Sydney on Monday.

Leaving a job before a year is up is not a horrible sin that will instantly render you unemployable. There are times when it' s reasonable to leave a job But if you have a history of a bunch of short-term stays ( less than two years ), then leaving this job any time soon is going to add to a worrisome impression.
The state's drought co-ordinator Jock Laurie has left the job less than 12 months into the role.
Mr Laurie, who was the land and water commissioner when he was appointed drought co-ordinator, was tasked with leading the second phase of the government's emergency drought response.
When Mr Laurie was appointed to the role, then water minister Niall Blair championed him as a "true friend of our farmers" who would "oversee the implementation of the government's drought relief measures to make sure the right assistance is reaching those most in need".
The Premier's office has been contacted for comment, as well as the office of Water Minister Melinda Pavey and Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall.
Mr Laurie was the former National Farmers Federation president and ran for preselection for the National Party for the state seat of Northern Tablelands in 2013.
He ran against Mr Marshall in the preselection, who went on to win the seat after former independent Richard Torbay quit Parliament.
