NSW state budget: Food vouchers, tax cuts and a COVID-19 focus

Restaurant vouchers, record spending on infrastructure and tax cuts are bricks in the path back to prosperity in NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet’s pandemic budget.

NSW’s six-year streak of budget surpluses officially ended in the year to June 30, going $6.9 billion into the red, while the forecast deficit for 2020/21 is $16 billion.

That’s mainly due to $29 billion spent on health and economic support packages to respond to COVID-19.

“This budget is completely appropriate for the time and ensures we get as many people in work as we can,” the treasurer told reporters on Tuesday.
