  Welcome back to Adjournment Notes.Parliament resumes next week for the Budget Sitting session. The State budget will be delivered on Tuesday 21 June by our new Treasurer, Hon Matt Kean MP. Whilst the economy and community are bouncing back strongly after three years of Covid restrictions, the budget will still have to deal with some tough challenges, including state debt, spiralling construction costs and a labour shortage.For many of us, the Federal election result was disappointing, especially after the huge efforts so many put in to assist our local campaigns as I did in Macquarie.
