Treasurer Jim Chalmers has delivered his first Budget for the Albanese government, tackling the burning issues of rising prices, housing affordability, education, aged care and child care. He's labelled it as "hard decisions for hard times".
Key Budget talking points include:
Pay rises for the lowest-paid Australians
Families to get more child care subsidies, paid parental leave
Tax cuts survive the new Federal Budget
More benefits for Centrelink recipients
Relief for aspiring home buyers
Increased funding for the environment, solar and EVs
