Budget 2012 Summary
Last year I gave you a wide-reaching view of the Budget process.
This year I wanted to flag some of our Budget initiatives that get overlooked in the hubbub around the headline items that the media like to froth over:
$4 million Haemorrhoid Support Garment Purchase Scheme, starting 2016
$42 million over 12 years for Esky Restoration Allowance
$850.00 over 3 years for Pseudo Echo Museum in Geelong
$4.8 million over 12 mths for a Kingswood Country Travelling Film Education Initiative: to ensure this iconic aussie TV masterpiece is shown in every school
$13.6 million over 3 years for a Bogan Tramp Stamp Removal Scheme
$2.8 million and a bain marie warehouse constructed in Brisbane as part of a new Chiko Roll Preservation Taskforce
$182 million over 2 years for the Sex Worker Financial Support Scheme, to assist a key industry suffering from reduced union investment
$4500.00 over 8 years on a 100% tax subsidy for any Australian investing in local manufacturing industry
$1.2 million to help Scouts, via Woggle Innovation Initiative

Appreciate your thoughts on any areas you feel we could have covered.
