ACT 2014-15 Budget Snapshot

Publication date: 
June 2014

In this Budget, the ACT Government has continued investment to stimulate the ACT economy and minimise the risks of a recession rather than implementing saving measures that would potentially return the ACT Budget to surplus in the short term but have a severe impact on the economy and community. Some of this will occur through borrowings that will fund new infrastructure. ACTCOSS supports this approach, and welcomes a recognition that there is a need to continue to support infrastructure and services. 

This paper summarises selected Budget initiatives.
