It may be November, but we are in the midst of state budget season, with COVID-19 forcing many state and territory governments to delay their annual budgets.
This month, the Victorian Government will announce its budget for the next year. With Australia rebuilding its economy and in desperate need of stimulus, this may be the most important budget the state government will have ever delivered.
This month represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to spend big on stimulus to create jobs, support businesses and tackle the biggest crisis of all: climate change. We know that supporting a clean economic recovery will generate jobs in both the immediate and longer-term, across both metropolitan and regional areas and in a wide range of different industries.
