The National Party's annual conference in Bowral saw members debate a range of motions from the parental income test cap to a shortage of skilled agricultural workers.

The conference attended by three hundred delegates from across the state saw plenty of support to get rid of Labor's 150 thousand dollar parental income test cap.

Deputy Leader of the senate Fiona Nash says the cap means students are unable to access youth allowance.

The shortage of skilled agricultural workers was also addressed with only eight hundred graduates to fill four thousand places.

Meantime the Coalition are divided over where Sydney's second Airport should be, with Ms. Nash saying Nationals leader Warren Truss is against it being at Wilton.

The Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner also announced changes that will see coal seam gas  producers invest in the communities in which they operate.

Seismologists believe it would've been felt as far as 50 kilometres away including Crookwell in the Upper Lachlan Shire.

Experts also say there's a chance of small aftershocks but probably won't be felt by anyone.
