DELIVERING OUR PLAN

 A STRONGER ECONOMY 

  • The Government is delivering a Budget surplus for the first time in more than a decade.
  • We are building a stronger economy by backing small business, lowering taxes to reward hard work, boosting exports and building infrastructure.

 MORE JOBS 

  • The Liberals’ 2013 pledge for 1 million jobs in five years was delivered ahead of schedule.
  • Last financial year, for the first time, over 100,000 young Australians found a job.
  • With a stronger economy, our commitment is for 1.25 million more jobs in five years.

 LOWER TAXES 

  • Our plan rewards and encourages hard work and helps families to get ahead.
  • From 1 July, over 10 million workers will get tax benefits of up to $1,080. After five years, 94% of taxpayers will pay a top rate of 30% or less.
  • We’re also providing an Energy Assistance Payment for over 5 million Australians.

 SMALL BUSINESS & STRONGER COMMUNITIES

  • Supporting local sports clubs with more than $10 million for upgrades including Abbotsford Juniors, Strathfield Park and Cintra Park.
  • Our tax relief benefits 3.4 million businesses employing over 7 million Australians. This will help small businesses get ahead and create jobs.
  • We’re extending the Instant Asset Write-Off (already accessed by over 350,000 small businesses). This helps small businesses invest in the machinery and equipment they need to grow.

 BETTER ROADS AND RAIL  

  • Congestion busting infrastructure, including WestConnex and $50 million to upgrade Homebush Bay Drive.
  • To ease congestion in cities and unlock the potential of our regions, we are investing a record $100 billion in infrastructure over a decade.
  • This includes major highway upgrades, congestion busting roads, commuter car parking, better local roads, urban rail, inland rail and faster rail between regional centres and major cities.

 A SECURE AUSTRALIA 

  • We’re building our defence capability with new ships, systems, aircraft, weapons and vehicles.
  • We’ve fixed Labor’s border security failure.
  • We have cancelled the visas of 4,200 serious criminals – including murderers, rapists, child sex offenders, armed robbers and drug dealers.

 BETTER SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS 

  • Funding increases for all 25 government schools in Reid over the next decade.
  • Improving local health infrastructure, including $2.2 million for the introduction of new maternity services at Concord Hospital.
  • Our funding agreements guarantee an extra $31 billion for hospitals over five years and an extra $37 billion for schools over the decade.
  • Medicare funding is guaranteed and the GP bulk billing rate is 86% (higher than under Labor).
  • Over 2,000 new life-changing medicines have been listed on the PBS, making them affordable.

 OUR ENVIRONMENT 

  • We are building Snowy 2.0 and backing Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation. These projects will help deliver reliable, renewable power to millions of homes and thousands of jobs.
  • Our Climate Solutions Fund will help farmers, small businesses and Indigenous communities reduce emissions and lower energy costs.

Fiona knows a strong economy doesn’t happen by accident and the risk to our community of Labor’s higher taxes on workers, retirees, and small businesses is significant. That’s why Fiona will work to help secure our economy and future.
