O’Farrell to shift emergency costs from insurers to public | David Shoebridge MLC.
“Barry O’Farrell’s first instinct is to always deliver for big business and this proposal could see business getting a $250 million a year tax break paid for by long-suffering householders,” Mr Shoebridge said.
“Replacing the insurance levy with an inequitable and poorly-targeted property tax is not a step forward. It will significantly shift the cost burden from businesses on to home owners.
“Such a model is not applied to the NSW Police, and it should not be applied to Fire and Rescue, the State Emergency Service or the Rural Fire Service.
