Reaction to SA’s mid year budget review

WHAT’S BEEN SAID ABOUT SA’S BUDGET UPDATE:

  • “It’s going to take a long time to deal with this. It’s not a matter of just opening a window and throwing money out. It’s about a methodical, patient approach to investing in our economy.” – Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis on the government’s plans to bring down unemployment
  • “What kind of economically illiterate government commits to delivering a growing surplus whilst creating no jobs in the middle of record unemployment?” – Opposition Leader Steven Marshall
  • “The removal of this deadweight business tax is a green light for investment.” – Property Council spokesman Daniel Gannon on plans to bring forward the removal of stamp duty on commercial transfers
  • “It is pleasing to see the state government heed the call of the CCF SA and build, build, build our way out of a poor economy.” – Civil Contractors Federation SA chief executive Phil Sutherland on plans to build 1000 new housing trust properties
  • “The tax base remains a problem, and in fact we still think that there is more work to be done on state tax reform into the future.” – SA Council of Social Services executive director Ross Womersely
