Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that he will introduce legislation aimed at changing the way that goods and services tax revenue is distributed. He promised that no state would be worse off under his GST plan, but shadow treasurer Chris Bowen said he is concerned that Morrison’s proposed legislation does not state explicitly that this would be the case. Similarly, the Tasmanian Government wants an "enforceable guarantee" from the federal government that it will not be worse off under the proposed changes.
