State Member for Currumbin Jann Stuckey MP says the LNP have acted swiftly to implement initiatives to ease cost of living pressure for Queenslanders.

“The Newman Government has immediately begun implementing the 100 day plan outlined before the state election to get Queensland back on track and address high  costs that are affecting all Queenslanders,” Ms Stuckey said 

“Like so many others across Queensland, residents of Currumbin are suffering after twenty years of Labor neglect in this great state and their back pockets are really hurting.

“The LNP recognise the urgent need to relieve some of these pressures on families and businesses through a number of actions.

“Cabinet has resolved to reduce the cost of water for families in South East Queensland and substantially lighten costs for all households.

“Further, family car registration will be frozen for the next three years and public transport relief will also be provided for frequent travellers.

“The decision to remove Labor’s waste levy will also see significant savings for businesses and families alike.

“Committing to freeze the standard electricity tariff (tariff 11) will save around $120 a year and provide real relief to Queensland households.

“By growing a four pillar economy Queenslanders will be better placed in the future and able to achieve key priorities including a reduction in unemployment to 4% within 6 years.

“The Newman Government has hit the ground running, wasting no time in demonstrating exactly how serious we are about easing everyday cost of living pressures for Queenslanders.

“We have ticked off every item on our 30 day plan and we have no intention of slowing down.
