Will Bowen commit to extra GST funding for Tasmania?

Tasmanians deserve to know before the Braddon by-election whether or not Labor will commit to providing extra GST funding for Tasmania.

The Prime Minister has put a deal on the table, which on the face of it, would see Tasmania receive more than $100 million in extra GST.

What’s Mr Bowen’s plan? Labor seems to be hoping that no one will notice that unless Mr Bowen backs the Coalition plan or comes up with a better alternative, Tasmania could actually receive less GST under Bill Shorten.

It’s time Mr Bowen came clean - will Tasmania get more GST funding under Labor, or a GST cut?
