These two weeks of Assembly life are all about Estimates Hearings. Here we have an opportunity to ask questions of the Government about their budget spending, financial strategies and projections, and accountability targets for the coming fiscal year.
It also gives us an opportunity to highlight to the public where their money is being spent or, as will be obvious, in many instances, wasted! Or where the numbers appear quite rubbery (see cartoon!)
I will be following up on questions related to my portfolios, Sports & Recreation and Indigenous Affairs. But will also be asking some difficult questions on behalf of the people of Yerrabi. We have already seen the government obfuscating on issues, admit to dodgy deals with the Unions, and not committing to their own signed-off COAG targets. What else will we discover?
Follow us on social media to find out more where your hard earned dollars are going, what the government is planning to spend and waste, and where the government is missing in its commitments to the people of the ACT.
