Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (9 June) . .
I am pleased that we have a well-balanced budget that still is not afraid to forge ahead with key initiatives like light rail. I am pleased that we have weathered the storm that has been the federal government over the past few years and we have come out well on the other side. I am proud that we have responded to identify needs in our community on family violence and support for our students in schools. And I am pleased we are investing in public housing and hospital services.
In October there is going to be a very clear choice about the future for our city. It will be a battle between a progressive government that looks forward and is sustainable and fair and a conservative government that looks backward and is stuck in the past. This is a budget that looks to the future while nurturing and supporting the most vulnerable in our community, and I commend the bill to the Assembly.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Bill agreed to in principle.
