2018-19 NSW STATE BUDGET UPDATE

 

NSW MINING DELIVERS ANOTHER $455 MILLION TO THE PEOPLE OF NSW

 

Today’s NSW Budget Update confirms the importance of a diverse economy beyond Sydney, with mining royalties continuing to help fill a decline in stamp duty revenue due to a slowing Sydney property market.


As part of the budget update announced by the NSW Treasurer, mineral royalties have been revised up by $227.5 million in 2018-19 and by $455.4 million over the four years to 2021-22.

 

Mining royalties are now expected to deliver over $7.8 billion in revenue over the next four years.

 

This $7.8 billion in mining royalties over the next four years would pay for the bulk of the NSW Government’s key Budget commitments on education, including the $6 billion commitment to fund 170 new and upgraded schools and the $500 million plan to deliver air-conditioning in 1000 schools across NSW.

 

Similarly, $7.8 billion in mining royalties would pay for almost all of the NSW Government’s $8 billion Budget commitments for better health facilities, including the funding of 40 new and upgraded hospitals across NSW, $700 million for a Mental Health Infrastructure Program and $150 million into research to fight cardiovascular disease.
