Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor says the Federal Budget is a plan for jobs and growth for Hume.
He said tax relief and incentives for small businesses will stimulate the region’s economy and support local industry to take on more employees, particularly young people.
Mr Taylor also said to make it easier for the more than 16,000 small businesses in Hume to invest in more staff, the tax rate for companies will be lowered, starting with small business.
"It's great for Hume and in particular this is a budget for small businesses and people really having a go. There are tax breaks here for small businesses particularly as they get bigger, and every small business person wants their business to be bigger. This is a great budget for them to get out, invest and create jobs."
