John Williams MP says the Nationals would not support any sell off of the State’s electricity distributors.

The message comes after the State Government cut a deal with Shooters Party MPs to sell electricity generators around the State.

Council feeling taxed

Wednesday, 7th December, 2011

By Craig Brealey

A tiny increase in residential rates to help councils with the cost of the new carbon price was not enough, given the size of electricity bills these days, according to Mayor Wincen Cuy.

Councils in NSW will be able to raise their rates by 3.6 per cent next year and a fraction of the increase - 0.4 per cent - is meant to compensate councils for the forthcoming carbon tax until the real cost of it was known.

The rise, known as the rate peg, is the maximum allowable by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) which sets the peg.
