ALGA has today launched its election plan ahead of the upcoming Federal election that outlines a number of proposals which, if implemented, could add an estimated $7.46 billion to national GDP and create an estimated 19,300 local jobs over three years.
The proposals in ALGA’s document, Local Government’s Plan for an Innovative and Prosperous Australia, include strategies to: increase freight productivity through targeted infrastructure investment; create new jobs and economic stimulus through a community infrastructure renewal and replacement program; and improve local and regional development through a permanent doubling of the Roads to Recovery program.
The coming weeks will be an exciting and busy time for us reaching out to politicians and getting our message heard as we approach the Federal election. Copies of our plan have already been provided to all Federal politicians and political parties and we will take every opportunity to call for support for our proposals.
