New inquiry into local government funding announced


The Minister of Local Government has announced the Government will ask the Productivity Commission to undertake an inquiry into local government funding. 

The Productivity Commission is still to receive terms of reference for this inquiry, and welcomes the opportunity to be consulted on it.

Once the terms of reference are finalised, the Commission will produce an issues paper for the inquiry. This will outline the timeframes of the inquiry and how individuals and organisations can make submissions.
