Rego hike

Isis Town and Country - - News -

DRIV­ERS from Bund­aberg and the Bur­nett will now pay more for car reg­is­tra­tion than ever be­fore as La­bor’s in­crease came into ef­fect last week. Bur­nett MP Stephen Ben­nett said while the LNP froze car reg­is­tra­tion for three years, La­bor was slug­ging driv­ers with an in­crease of 3.5%, two and a half times the in­fla­tion rate. “This in­crease is un­fair and puts un­nec­es­sary cost of liv­ing pres­sure on the fam­i­lies in our re­gion,” Mr Ben­nett said. “Queens­lan­ders didn’t vote for mas­sive price hikes and that is ex­actly what they have got.”
