The Tasmanian Government will always stand up for Tasmania’s best interests.
On face value, the Federal Government’s proposal delivers on its commitment that Tasmania would not be one dollar worse off.
Based on the Federal Government’s modelling, Tasmania may well receive additional funding under the proposal of $112 million over the next eight years with the potential for additional increased funding in perpetuity.
The Tasmanian Treasury will now conduct a detailed assessment of the proposal.
The Tasmanian Government won’t accept the proposal if it’s not in Tasmania’s best interests.
State and territory treasurers will meet with the Federal Treasurer in September to discuss the proposal and Tasmanians know that the Government will always argue for Tasmania’s fair share.
