A Green Vision for Tasmania…
We are proud to present the Tasmanian Greens’ fully costed, long-term vision for Tasmania, our
Alternative Budget 2019-20.

As Greens, we recognise a good State Budget must address the triple bottom line. It must also apply
the lens of intergenerational equity to policy and funding decisions. Future generations deserve
nothing less.

Our vision for the future is of a healthy, resilient and prosperous Tasmania, where the natural
environment is protected and every citizen feels included and respected.

We know Tasmania can be a beacon to the world of sustainability, creativity and fairness. This
requires both heart and leadership, a preparedness to see past the short term and to recognise an
investment in the wellbeing of people is an investment in the future wellbeing of all Tasmanians.

In a time of climate emergency, as a community we must prioritise strong climate action. We can
bring down emissions, adapt to a rapidly changing climate and create new career pathways for
Tasmanians looking for work. On this critical measure, we deliver.

Right now in Tasmania, unemployment is the highest in the country. A growing number of young
people, families and older singles are finding it harder and harder to rent, let alone buy, a home. At
the same time, both patients and staff in the State’s four public hospitals are under intensifying
pressure. With underinvestment in public health comes further disadvantage.

The Greens’ Alternative Budget prioritises high quality health, housing and education services for
every Tasmanian. It makes a clear choice to deliver better social infrastructure over roads and
bridges.

We demonstrate it is possible to really tackle the housing crisis, to increase the supply of secure,
affordable, energy-efficient housing.

Our Alternative Budget removes poker machines from communities and raises the tax on casinos. It
levies international visitors for the privilege of spending time on this beautiful island and increases
registration for high emissions vehicles. It cuts funding to V8 supercars and imposes a sensible
waste levy to pay for environmental protection and community wellbeing.

The Greens have always recognised that strengthening Tasmania’s democratic institutions and the
human rights of all citizens in an equal society makes for a stronger, more diverse and resilient
community.

A State Budget is a statement of values. Our values are clearly reflected in this Alternative Budget.

Greens Leader Member for Franklin
Tackling the Climate Emergency
This was the hottest summer in the State’s history, with fires that threatened communities for
weeks and burnt 6% of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Tasmania is feeling the escalating volatile climate. People want reassurance their government
recognises the climate emergency, and is prepared to act and protect them.

Climate action is at the heart of the Greens’ Budget, and it starts with leadership. Our Budget
reinstates a Minister for Climate Change and the Climate Action Council, both axed by the Hodgman
Government in 2014.

Our Budget appoints a Chief Scientist to oversee all government policy, with a view to ensuring the
government’s response to the climate emergency is grounded in the latest evidence.

Our Budget ends all native forest logging to preserve the State’s much needed carbon sinks and to
protect the wondrous biodiversity of our forests. We also fund multiple methods of carbon
sequestration across farming and land management.

With a dry El Nino forecast this summer, and extreme weather events no longer ’exceptional’, our
Budget recognises the costs of responding to these events are likely to soar, year on year, into the
future.

We invest in 20 extra Remote Area Firefighters, and fund the trial of two Very Large Air Tankers to
fight bushfires that threaten homes and wilderness. We also provide the resources for communities
to plan for better bushfire protection.

Our Budget supports the necessary and inevitable transition from fossil to renewable fuels, and
prioritises funding into public transport options.

We start construction on Hobart Light Rail, and further invest in Derwent ferries to get more cars off
Hobart’s busy roads.

We electrify the Ministerial and Government fleets and fund the rollout of electric buses. We build
more pedestrian infrastructure and cycleways, including the Battery Point Walkway, to reduce
emissions, improve people’s health and create a more liveable city.

The Greens would also invest $3 million a year in energy-efficiency upgrades to low income
households – those people hit hardest by climbing power bills.

Future Planning
Responsible governments prepare for the future. The Greens recognise there are massive transitions
occurring worldwide in the employment, communication, and energy sectors – as well as the global
climate system.

Our Budget prioritises planning to position Tasmania for tomorrow’s opportunities as well as its
challenges. We want to protect our island’s many values that are the source of our clean, green
brand.

We establish the portfolio of Minister for Employment to tackle our high unemployment and to
actively prepare for the industries and jobs of the future. The Employment Minister would oversee
the reskilling of seniors and people in regional areas, where industries are changing fast in an
increasingly automated world.

Our Budget focuses on all regions, and provides the tools communities need to choose their own
economic path. We invest $50 million each year into a Regional Reinvestment infrastructure fund to
help communities succeed.

Tasmania has a growing population, and our settlement and land use patterns must actively reflect
the demands of the climate emergency. Planning must prioritise environmental protection, public
participation, and value our shared public places.

The Greens’ Budget establishes the Office of the Chief Engineer, State Demographer and reinstates
the State Architect. These offices will ensure Tasmania is equipped with the expertise needed for
future planning.

We institute real State Policies and fund comprehensive biodiversity mapping, so that Tasmania has
an integrated framework for future developments that works for people and protects our
environment.

We provide additional funding to the Tasmanian Planning Commission, the Resource Management
Planning Appeals Tribunal and the Environmental Defenders Office to guarantee the planning system
maintains its integrity and the public has a real say in developments.

Housing Crisis Response
Every Tasmanian has the right to a secure, affordable place to call home. This is a fundamental
human right being denied to a growing number of Tasmanians.

On any given night in Tasmania, up to 1600 Tasmanians are homeless. They are living on the streets,
in shelters and tents, temporarily at friends’ places or in their cars. Many more are languishing on
the Housing waiting list, now at its highest level in a decade.

We can and must do better by Tasmanians who are being shut out of both the rental and real estate
market.

To deliver a sustainable social housing system, the State needs to absorb the Commonwealth
housing debt in to the Consolidated Fund, unburdening Housing Tasmania to increase the supply of
affordable housing. We demonstrate that this is necessary and achievable. It’s all about priorities.

The Greens’ Budget invests $50 million in building new, energy efficient homes in the next two
financial years.

We also invest $30 million in to new homelessness facilities to help those who need immediate
emergency relief.

The Greens would regulate short stay accommodation and implement a vacant resident tax to free
up supply of affordable homes.

The Greens’ Budget tackles the housing crisis immediately and would provide real relief for those in
housing distress.

We present housing solutions to meet the immediate, medium and long term needs of Tasmanians.

Health and Wellbeing
The Greens understand individual health and wellness is the basis of a healthy community, which
our investment priorities reflect.

Tasmanian hospitals are bursting at the seams. When patients arrive they wait hours for acute care.

In order to tackle the rising demand for emergency services, we understand it is critical to properly
fund those preventative services that help keep people well for longer.

The government has dropped the ball on reducing the very high rates of smoking, alcohol and drug
use, and of poor nutrition. We invest $23 million into community preventative health services,
expanding the Population Health Unit, and into drug rehabilitation treatment.

We also recognise that when people need an emergency service, they need help immediately. Our
Budget provides $6 million for ten psychiatric and ten emergency department nurses, and for extra
clinical specialists to reduce the pressure in acute emergency care.

The levels of mental ill health in Tasmania, including rising depression and anxiety among young
people, are deeply concerning. The Greens’ Budget prioritises an extra $26 million into mental
health services. This includes $12 million for child and youth mental health services, with a focus on
protection, so that young people don’t fall through service cracks, and can have age-appropriate
care.

People should have access to excellent health care across their life span, including at the end stage.
We provide substantial funding of $42 million into those palliative care services Tasmanians want,
including a northern Whittle Ward and $3 million annually for Hospice at Home.

The safety of young people at music festivals is paramount, and our Budget provides for an
education program on pill testing.

This Budget acknowledges that funding preventative health is a Budget saving. We promote healthy
living and mental wellness, along with reproductive health and compassionate palliative care
choices.

Environment and Parks
Tasmania’s protected areas and environment are the main reason people travel from around the
world to visit. Those values must be protected, not exploited.

Our Budget establishes a stand-alone Department of Environment and Parks to prioritise the
protection of the places we love that are unique in the world. We also invest in an extra 15 park
rangers and 15 field officers.

The booming visitor economy is having a heavy impact on parks and regional areas. Our Budget
institutes a visitor levy, so people who visit our state contribute to ensuring its values are looked
after.

The Greens establish stronger environmental laws, and an independent Environmental Protection
Authority, to protect our natural marine and land areas.

Our Budget defunds the divisive and exploitative Expressions of Interest process established by the
Liberal Government for private development in Parks and funds a statutory process to govern the
development decisions within Parks and Reserves.

Our Budget ensures protected areas can no longer be privatised by stealth, and gives Tasmanians a
say about how public lands are protected for generations to come.

We recognise Australia’s largest temperate rainforest, the world renowned and celebrated
takayna/Tarkine should be protected. The Greens create a takayna/Tarkine National Park.

The Budget invests $5 million a year in regenerating farming and other degraded lands, to improve
biodiversity, through an Ecosystem Regeneration Fund. We also provide extra funds for the
important work of Landcare, and towards a seed bank to preserve native species.

Our Budget addresses the escalating waste crisis by introducing a Waste Levy - long supported by
local councils - with funding directed towards a container deposit scheme, statewide single-use
plastic laws, addressing trade waste, and preparing Tasmania for a zero waste future.

Education and Skills Training
Every young Tasmanian deserves a high quality public education that nourishes their potential, and
clear training and career pathways. A strong investment in public education underpins the State’s
future social and economic wellbeing.

The Greens will work with parents and communities to develop a “quality guarantee” for Tasmanian
schools, setting annual minimum standards for all schools and holding government to account for
lifting standards.

To resource the quality guarantee we invest $32 million for 90 additional teachers and 80 support
staff to ease pressure on educators and lift educational outcomes. We also allocate an additional
$30 million towards quality school infrastructure.

We recognise some students need extra support to reach their potential. We provide funding for 30
hours of tutoring for each student who falls below the national standard, for each standard they fall
below.

We also invest in 50 FTE Speech Pathologists, doubling the current number in the public system. This
will ensure each Speech Pathologist on average works with two schools, ensuring they have
adequate time to work with all the students who need them.

Young people are experiencing depression and anxiety in increasing numbers. We understand a
quality education is not solely about academic performance, it’s also very much about student
wellbeing.

Our Budget invests $8 million in to extra school psychologists, $6 million for social workers and
establishes a Climate Resilience program across the public education system. We want young
Tasmanians to be ready for the future in every possible way.

We allocate resourcing towards introducing comprehensive civics’ education to the school


curriculum to ensure young people are engaged and aware of this nation’s democratic foundations.
Tasmanian schools are fostering the leaders of tomorrow - we see this as a crucial education reform.

The Greens recognise the vital role TasTAFE plays in preparing young people for the jobs of today
and tomorrow. This Budget revitalises an underfunded TAFE system and establishes a Centre of
Excellence in Aged and Disability Care, an area of rapid and increasing jobs growth.

Our Budget provides the education framework Tasmania needs, improving education and wellbeing
outcomes for every young Tasmanian.

Children and Young People
Children and young people are able to flourish in a secure and stable environment. To reach their full
personal and emotional potential, young people need to be nurtured and supported through a
sustained commitment from all sectors of government and our community.

Tasmania’s child safety system is chronically and dangerously underfunded. Significant investment is
urgently required.

Our Budget provides for 50 new child safety officers and restores the support staff cut by the
Liberals. These initiatives will free up child safety workers to investigate allegations and support
parents.

The Greens recognise the wellbeing of Tasmania’s children should be above politics. We will move
to establish a Joint Standing Committee on Child Safety, to provide non-partisan Parliamentary
leadership and foster collaboration.

Our Budget funds a specialised Child, Youth and Family Intervention course through TasTAFE and a
Cadetship Program trial to run over three years in order to attract, train and retain new staff.

We invest in developing minimum standards for foster carers and increasing the support available to
carers. We also fund parent advocacy services to improve the chances of safe, sustainable family
reunions.

The Greens’ Budget provides additional caseworkers, restores support and provides the building
blocks for a more secure, nurturing child safety system.

Justice and Democracy
A healthy democracy and justice system are critical social infrastructure and are vital elements of a
fair and equitable society. When these erode, the whole community suffers.

The Greens understand the importance of justice for our first people, the palawa pakana. The
Tasmanian Aboriginal community has been neglected by this government. To have justice, we must
take real steps towards reconciliation.

Our Budget provides funding to develop a Treaty with Aboriginal Tasmanians. We would restart the
process of returning land, consult to establish a Reconciliation Day, and ensure Tasmanian Aboriginal
history is taught in schools.

All government policy and legislation must take human rights into consideration. The Greens will
move to establish a Human Rights Act, and our Budget supports the legislation with a Human Rights
Commission to ensure human rights compliance by Parliament and government.

Our Budget establishes a Restorative Justice Policy and Programs Unit within the Department of
Justice, which focuses on crime prevention and on rehabilitation programs in prisons and within
communities.

The Greens recognise the Ashley Youth Detention Centre is not fit for its purpose. Our Budget
establishes two facilities, one in the north and one in the south. These facilities are based on the
world’s best practice ‘Missouri Model’ that emphasises rehabilitation and adopts a therapeutic
model to reduce reoffending.

We recognise our integrity bodies are a critical part of holding governments to account and are
currently underfunded for the important work they do. We increase funding levels to the Integrity
Commission and the Ombudsman.

The Greens’ Budget puts rights back into the justice system and invests in democracy, both critical
pillars to the functioning of Tasmania.

Communities, Culture and the Arts
Healthy and vibrant communities require good leadership and tangible investment.

A keystone of the Greens’ Budget is the removal of poker machines from pubs and clubs.

We know poker machine addiction leeches funds from some of the most disadvantaged areas. It
causes family breakdown, suicide, homelessness, addiction and poverty.

Our Budget increases the taxes and licencing fees on casinos in Tasmania, who profit hugely from
gambling. This is in line with similar approaches towards alcohol and tobacco products and would
provide $58 million in revenue over the Forward Estimates.

We also invest $1 million a year in to a Medical Cannabis Compassionate Growers Scheme, to ensure
more Tasmanians currently suffering with chronic conditions or illnesses can access this critical pain
relief medication.

The Greens understand that Tasmanians living with a disability who require services not covered by
the NDIS shouldn’t suffer. Our Budget provides funding for those services and for a disability self-
advocacy program, to ensure people living with a disability are guaranteed their own strong voice.

We invest in world’s best practice elder abuse prevention legislation to protect older Tasmanians
from physical, emotional and financial abuse.

Our Budget properly invests in the community sector.

We restore indexation to community sector organisations, so those who support Tasmania’s most
disadvantaged aren’t so themselves. We establish a Community Services Commission to ensure
there is appropriate oversight of the sector and individual rights are protected.

The Greens understand cultural investment is critical to healthy communities, especially in regional
areas. We invest $4 million in Regional Arts Grants and $800,000 for emerging artists, to foster
talent and connect communities.

Animal Welfare
The way we treat animals reflects who we are as a society. Tasmania still has chickens trapped in
battery cages, 1080 poison being laid on farmlands and plantations and greyhounds being killed by
the hundreds every year to prop up a cruel industry.

Tasmania can do much better by all its creatures, great and small.

The Greens’ Budget establishes an Animal Welfare Commission to ensure the rights of animals are
respected and protected.

The Greens will move to strengthen the Animal Welfare Act 1993 to contemporise the legal
framework for a more humane Tasmania.

This Budget outlaws the cruel industries of battery hen farms and greyhound racing, as well as
rodeos. We will also move to ensure the mental suffering of animals is captured within the Animal
Welfare Act 1993, so those who torture animals face meaningful consequences.

We establish an Animal Welfare Inspectorate within Tasmania Police.

Animal cruelty offences and welfare crimes are currently under-investigated or not prosecuted due
to a lack of inspectorate resourcing. We recognise the pressing need for Tasmania Police to be
properly resourced to effectively undertake inspectorate work.

The Greens’ Budget invests in animal sanctuaries and shelters in recognition of the vital work they
do on behalf of the voiceless.
