The South Australian government promised to deliver « the biggest economic adrenaline hit in South Australian history » in a budget Tuesday

Prime Minister Stephen Marshall revealed that the government will spend $ 4 billion to stimulate the state’s economy

Small businesses will be among the main winners, as Mr. Marshall today announced a second round of cash grants of $ 10,000 to eligible operators.

“We are determined to do everything we can to help keep their lights on, open their doors and work diligently at the jobs”

For the first time since the start of the new Coronavirus pandemic, merchants and companies that do not employ employees will be eligible to receive $ 3,000 cash grants.

“This was something that we brought up with the government in July, and they delivered it in this year’s budget,” Chapman said.

“This acknowledges that individual merchants often have rented buildings or work in commercial buildings and that their businesses have been affected by COVID”

Only merchants must operate from a commercial place to qualify for the cash, except for those who work from home

The government’s $ 4 billion economic package will include funds to build trade, infrastructure projects, grassroots sports, community grants, and attract businesses to South Africa

Mulligan said the government was including money « saved » from tax deferrals as part of its total spending

“You can’t give people three, six, or nine months off when paying their land tax or payroll tax only until it is due at the end of that period – and then claim that this is an economic incentive,” he said

“This tax has yet to be paid a bill that thousands of businesses and homeowners still have to come up with,”

“If [Treasurer] Rob Lucas claims this is the backbone of his stimulus package, that’s not good enough”

How and when the government will complete the final and most controversial section of the North-South Corridor The big ticket announcement is expected tomorrow

$ 5 billion has been allocated to connect the last ten 5 kilometers of the highway, between the Torrens River and Darlington, in southern Adelaide

Current options include digging a tunnel under the South Road or demolishing numerous properties, including the Historic Thepparton Theater in Adelaide

Last month, Labor said it had obtained leaked documents that revealed the project would not be completed until 2035 – a delay of more than a decade

« There are real complications to this project. Part of that is making sure that we strike the right balance in terms of cost, in terms of time frame, in terms of construction inconvenience and also in terms of property acquisition. »
