Health & Education
✔️ Abolish state school fees by fully funding Queensland public education. Invest an extra $7 billion over four years for no fees, smaller class sizes and better resources.
✔️ Hire 6,500 nurses, 3,000 doctors & establish 200 bulk billing GP clinics across Qld, and bring private hospitals into public hands.
✔️ Create 20,000 construction jobs per year by building 100,000 public homes.
✔️ Create 23,000 jobs a year all across Queensland by building 20,000MW of solar, wind and pumped hydro.
Cost of living
✔️ Cut electricity bills by 46% by reversing Labor’s privatisation of electricity retail and ending the price gouging by state owned network and generation companies.
✔️ Abolish all state school service fees, excursion costs and textbook costs, replacing them with extra Government funding.
✔️ Raise an extra $55 billion over four years by increasing Coal and LNG royalties to 35% and 20% for base and precious metals.
✔️ Raise over $4.6 billion over four years by introducing a state level big bank levy of a tiny 0.05% on the five biggest banks operating in Queensland.
Here's what we've announced so far:
More for Qld, less for mining billionaires
If we had fair royalty rates over the last 4 years, the Qld Government would have an extra $55 billion for hospitals, schools and public infrastructure.
