Goulburn state member, Wendy Tuckerman is calling attention to an Emergency Drought Relief package to give more support to farmers and regional communities.

 

This gives the potential for assistance to local farmers and businesses, including on-farm subsidies for transport and waiving land rates.

 

Mrs Tuckerman says this will help boost the local economy and support for the community.

 

The extension of the Emergency Drought Relief measures point to more assistance for those on the land, more infrastructure for safe and secure water supply and investment aimed at stimulating the economy.

 

Mrs Tuckerman added that a $170 million infrastructure and stimulus package for regions would help mitigate the ripple effect of stressful situations like the drought.
