QLD government set to cut car registration fees by 20%

QLD government set to cut car registration fees by 20%
The Premier made the announcement a little earlier here at this football field in Holland Park in Brisbane. S he's announced 20% will be slashed off car registration fees for all Queenslanders later this year. That's expected to save up to $172 for 5.6 million QLD households. That's also come with an announcement to boost the Fair Play voucher program, which helps parents to offset the expensive costs of club and representative sport. That's going up by $50.00 and will be made available to 200,000 QLD households. Now this obviously follows a suite of other cost of living policies that the Premier has announced, which includes a $1000 electricity rebate for all Queenslanders and also the slashing of all public transport fares to $0.50 later this year. That's going to all be in the state budget next week, which will be handed down to Parliament on Tuesday. Here's what the Premier had to say a little earlier about some of those measures. And on the very first day that I was Premier that I would listen to Queenslanders and deliver for them. And I've said consistently since then that what I've heard from Queenslanders is they want us to focus on their cost of living because they feel like the cost of everything just seems to keep going up. And since then we've made a number of major announcements designed to address the cost of living. $1000 energy rebates, 50 Cent public transport, 20% off rego and $200.00 fair play vouchers. Now, the premier has denied that this is politicking or an attempt to grab votes ahead of the state election later this year. But it's unclear if either of these two programs and the funding boost to them will be extended if he's reelected later this year.
