NSW Nationals Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke MP has welcomed the 2020/21 NSW Budget which has regional NSW at the forefront.
Investing in the future of Regional NSW
Regional communities are at the heart of the NSW Budget, with historic investment in roads, hospitals, education, recovery and resilience efforts and transformational infrastructure.
The NSW Nationals in the state government have worked hard to secure funding that will not only help revive our regions after drought, bushfire and COVID, but ensure they remain a great place to live, study, work and raise a family.
We know that everything that’s real comes from the regions – from our food to our building supplies and even the power that keeps us cool during summer. This Budget shows how important it is to have a dedicated voice for the regions in government, fighting hard to give our communities their fair share.
“This Budget is about bridging the city and bush divide and making sure people living in regional, rural and remote areas have access to the same world-class facilities and services as those in the city.”
