Budget summary for Gippsland
Tax cuts and a big infrastructure spend in last night's federal budget will benefit Gippsland.
The budget was big on stimulus measures to boost jobs and to get the economy growing again after Covid-19.
To summarise a few key points for Gippsland:
The Bonang Road will be sealed all the way through in a $9 million project. And there's money for local councils to spend on roads and infrastructure.
Gippsland's substantial food and fibre sector will be boosted as part of a massive export push.
The government has funding to reduce the impacts of bushfires and to boost firefighting capability.
There are also tax cuts coming soon and Gippsland's young people will get help with training and employment.
