Recharging Our Regions: Liberals’ billion dollar plan

State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall has released Recharging Our Regions, a billion dollar package to create regional jobs and drive regional investment.

A Marshall Liberal Government will deliver Recharging Our Regions to create regional jobs, increase investment in regional infrastructure, drive down the cost of living and improve frontline services.

Key components of Recharging Our Regions include;

  • $150 million Regional Growth Fund
  • $750 million Royalties for Regions program
  • $360 million cut to the ESL
  • Liberal Energy Solution which will reduce household and business electricity bills
  • Improvements to frontline services

“Recharging Our Regions is a billion dollar package to create regional jobs and drive investment in our regions,” said State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall.

“For 16 long years this city-centric Weatherill Labor Government has neglected our regions and we’ve seen a decline in some regional populations as our young people continue to leave in droves because of the lack of opportunities.

“That’s why we have announced Recharging Our Regions, to reinvigorate our regions which are so important to the future prosperity of our state and make sure they get their fair share.

“We will drive investment in our regions through our $150 million fund to create regional jobs and our $750 million fund to invest in regional roads and infrastructure.

“We will also ease the cost of living by cutting ESL bills by $360 million, cut the average household power bill by $302 once our Liberal Energy Solution is fully implemented and cap council rate and NRM levy increases.
