NSW 2150 Eric dreams of being in black REBECCA WOOLLEY state parliament TREASURER Eric Roozendaal has handed down the state's much anticipated budget with a lower than predicted deficit of $1.3 billion and an expectation to be back in the black within two years. Announcing a cash injection of $62.9 billion over four years for infrastructure creating 160,000 jobs, Mr Roozendaal ruled out bringing in any new taxes but also predicted unem- ployment in NSW would rise to 8.5 per cent by 2010-11. He said the state's balance sheet would be expected to re- cord surpluses of $86 million in 2011-12 and $642 million in 2012-13. ''It is a serious Budget for serious times with a massive investment on infrastructure to support jobs, to cushion the downturn and to lift us back to surplus,'' Mr Roozendaal told Parliament. In a bid to buoy the construc- tion sector, he announced an extension of the $3000 First Home Buyers Supplement for newly-built homes until the end of June 2010. Stamp duty will also be cut by 50 per cent on newly built home worth up to $600,000 to kick- start the industry. NSW businesses will be given ''preferred treatment on govern- ment contracts before overseas companies get a look in'' and pay roll tax will be cut to 5.5 per cent by 2011. The biggest slice of funding went to health with $15.1 billion invested, including $7.1 million to Auburn Hospital. A total of $14.7 billion will go towards education and training with 17 major projects including an upgrade at Homebush West. The Rees Government's con- troversial plan to provide front- line police with Taser stun guns took a $10 million chunk of the $2.62 billion police budget which will also pay for an extra 250 police officers and increased forensic testing. Mr Roozendaal said the Budget was framed in the ''toughest economic conditions since 1975''. 43 46 33 Dress shop's right address THE not-for-profit organisation Suited for Work featured in last week's Inner-West Weekly is lo- cated at 38-40 Railway Pde, Burwood, at the rear of The Smith Family shop.
