Bud­get sil­ver lin­ing?

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times | News -

THE re­lease of last week’s 2017/18 State Bud­get has left some less than pleased with what it could mean for the Lower South West. There is hope the roll out of some money could still in­di­rectly ap­ply to the re­gion through things like the Re­gional Events Scheme and re­gional road safety pro­grams.

How­ever, there are con­cerns PATS and TAFE sub­si­dies for re­gional stu­dents have not been prop­erly funded and Roy­al­ties for Re­gions money will be used on items that should come from reg­u­lar fund­ing streams, so the re­gion would need to get a fair slice of this pie to make up for the short­falls.
