STATE TO SPEND MORE ON ROADS

Debt to grow after budget

After 16 years on the opposition benches, Rob Lucas returned as Treasurer in 2018, with a plan to bring SAís budget back into black.

But two years on, after catastrophic bushfires and in the midst of a world-disrupting pandemic, everythingís changed.

Mr Lucas has delivered a budget he says is "drowning in red ink".

According to the ABC, itís not forecast to return to surplus until the end of the 2023-24 financial year, and the Treasurer admits thatís not a done deal.

He said if a COVID-19 vaccine isnít available by the end of next year the government will be in "a world of pain".

But while the deficit indicates the government is spending more money than itís collecting in revenue in any given year, another figure is also reaching record levels ó the stateís overall debt.

Debt was due to grow to $21.3 billion by 2022-23, but this latest budget forecasts it to reach $33.17 billion by 2023-24.
