LABOR STATE CONFERENCE SUPPORTS AMENDMENT TO IMPROVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR AREAS SUCH AS NEWCASTLE TO SECURE STATE GOVERNMENT FUNDING

The NSW Opposition has pledged to improve the opportunities for areas such as Newcastle to secure state funding.

Newcastle MP Tim Crakanthorp and Wollongong MP Paul Scully moved an amendment to the party's economic policy at Labor's state conference on Sunday to provide better clarity about state government funding categories.

"In government Labor will create a clear definition of different funding categories for areas outside greater Sydney so communities have a fair chance at accessing and securing government funding," the amendment said.
