Statement on the State Budget
Given uncertainty around the state budget and when it will be delivered, it is vital Jackie Trad and Annastacia Palaszczuk announce an immediate economic stimulus package.
While other states have powered ahead with significant assistance packages, Annastacia Palaszczuk is spending just 0.05 per cent of government revenue on Queensland’s coronavirus stimulus package.
Her response pales in comparison to $2.3 billion assistance package announced by the New South Wales government and other states.
The LNP is calling for the freezing of car rego, ceilings for bulk water and electricity prices and giving immediate payroll tax relief for around 15,000 businesses.
Labor need to act as this health crisis is fast becoming a jobs crisis.
