This explainer is designed to help affiliate organisations of CAPA understand the key messages of the 2019/20 Federal Budget. It covers details that CAPA thinks are relevant to students, and does not cover everything contained in the budget. Most of the measures included in the budget, particularly new programs, will require legislation that will not be complete and passed before the Government calls the next Federal Election. Therefore, much of this budget is an election statement and much is unlikely to be fully realised unless the Coalition are re-elected or the ALP adopts the measures should they be elected as government.
