Inland Rail Funds Bring a Major Budget Boost for Riverina

Inland Rail was a big feature of last night's Federal Budget, with $8.4 billion for the route which will pass through Wagga, Junee, Illabo and Stockinbingal, set to bring huge economic benefits to the wider Riverina region.

There's also a bigger spend on the Building Better Regions Fund, and a return of indexation on financial assistance grants for local councils.

Riverina MP and Small Business Minister Michael McCormack has also welcomed a boost for small business, including extensions to instant asset write-offs, and incentive payments for cutting red tape.
