The National Farmers Federation and the Griffith University have released a report titled, Reform of Australia’s Federal System. The report was initially commissioned to explore the mechanisms where by a new state might be created within NSW, to overcome the excessive spending of resources on Sydney at the expense of the regions. The report was expanded in line with a number of projects that examine the future of regional Australia and the relationships between various levels of government.
There is now a large group that includes academics, farmers, regional chambers of commerce and environmentalists calling for a massive overhaul of Australia’s system of government. The full range of reports is available online at The Griffith University
