The federal government’s April 2019 Budget bottom line is expected to be boosted by a sharp rise in earnings from resource and energy exports. The value of such exports is forecast to have grown by about $20bn since the December quarter, due to a rise the prices of key commodities. Meanwhile, the Budget is set to include $2.2m worth of additional funding for road safety programs over the next four years, with about half of this to be allocated to regional projects.
